A Flower for a Friend …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you had a nice weekend.  I spent a big part of mine cutting cardstock and preparing for the upcoming Appreciation Party.  I really do find it quite relaxing, and quality time with my sister Eileen.

Today I’d like to share with you a simple card with the cutest little punched flower!  Let’s begin with our card base … I am using the beautiful Blackberry Bliss.  It not only looks but sounds yummy!

I paired the Blackberry Bliss with the Whisper White and Park Lane designer series paper and added the Blackberry Bliss 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon to soften the edge between the two.

The pretty little flower was created with the Pansy and Petite Petals punches in Blackberry Bliss and Perfect Plum.

STAMPIN’ TIP: The Perfect Plum portion of the flower was created by cutting out one of the petals from the Pansy Punch and then bringing the ends together to form a smaller flower.  The leaves were also created from the Pansy Punch – cutting into the center and then trimming into a leaf shape.

The greeting comes from the Feel Goods stamp set and is stamped in the Blackberry Bliss to coordinate with the card base, flower, ribbon and designer paper.  Gotta love that!
