We made this card in one of my classes this month. The idea is from a card that was on display at the Stampin’ Up! Leadership conference. I though the idea was really neat – and at first glance you probably can’t tell that the large blossom flower is actually the negative portion of the punched image. It is a bit of an illusion.
The card base is Calypso Coral and then there is a piece of the Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper attached. The white layer was run through the Stripes Embossing Folder (you can get it free during Sale-A-Bration) and then the Blossom Punch (Occasions Mini catalog) is punched in the side to create the opening of the flower. Put this over the designer paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add the center circle with a matching brad to finish the large flower. We used the In-Color Printed brads and everyone got to choose between – Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, and Wisteria Wonder brads. The Boho Blossoms punch was used to add the smaller flowers and they have the silver mini brads as their centers.
The strip across the front is stamped with words from the Loving Thoughts stamp set (Occasions Mini Catalog). I gave this card to my downline Lisa for her birthday last week. And most of the girls at my class called it a “Vera” card.
Enjoy the day!
