Punched posy of flowers for a quick card

Here’s another way to use the fantastic Lace Ribbon Border punch that I used here and here. This time I’ve matted and layered with it, so that just the edge of it is peeking out, to create an accent of colour on the card.

The feature flowers are made using one of our fabulous new hostess sets Posy Punch, that works with the Fancy Flower, 3/4″ Circle and 1″ Circle punches.

Recipe
Stamp set: Posy Punch (W122480 or C 122482) (hostess set)
Cardstock: So Saffron (108611), Pacific Point (116202), Very Vanilla (106550)
Ink: Pumpkin Pie (105216), Tangerine Tango (111834), Pacific Point (111837)
Punches: Fancy Flower (118073), 1″ Circle (119868), Lace Ribbon Border (122362)
Embossing Folder: Elegant Bouquet (115964)
Tools: Big Shot (113439)

A panel of So Saffron card was run through the Big Shot with the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder to give a little texture. A single strip of Pacific Point Card was punched with the Lace Ribbon Border and then cut in two and matted behind each long edge of the textured panel before adhering direct to the So Saffron card front. The top flower was stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink onto Very Vanilla card and punched out with the Fancy Flower. The other two flowers were stamped in Tangerine Tango ink onto Very Vanilla card and punched out in the same way. I used the darker ink on these latter two flowers as the patterns are a little less dense and I wanted to balance the colour intensity. The Hello sentiment was stamped in Pacific Point ink onto Very Vanilla card and punched out with the 1″ Circle. Dimensionals were used to pop the flowers up on the card front and pop the sentiment up in the centre of the middle flower.

Please stop by tomorrow for a run-down on our fabulous new hostess programme – it’s now even more flexible than before and works for stampers and non-stampers alike.

Thanks for stopping by.
