Technique Tuesday: Layered Flowers with Punches

Hello my Stampin’ Friends,

While searching for a card for a friend, I came along a card that I had made a while back and wanted to share it with you.

I remember when I first saw how a fellow demonstrator made this flower and thought how cool is that!  I personally wouldn’t have thought about putting these two punches together, but I’m glad she did!

Blossom Get Well Card

You begin with the “Blossom Punch” … I think most of you have that one already.  Then you will use another popular punch the “Modern Label” punch.  Most of us pair this one up with word window.  Don’t worry if you do not have these punches,  I will have the links at the bottom of my post for you.

OK… as I started before, you begin with the Blossom punch.  I punched my flower out of Old Olive on this card.  Then I chose Strawberry Slush (same as background) and punched 3 pieces from the Modern Label punch.  I cut those pieces in half and layered them over my Blossom punched flower.  It layers so beautifully.

You can choose any design for the center, the one used here is retired.  The center is just a piece of designer paper with a nice coating of the Crystal Effects.

The border around the Strawberry Slush cardstock was created with the “Framed Tulips” embossing folder.

And last by not least … one of my favorite greetings “Perfectly Penned”.  I hope this one does not retire for a long time!  I love it, love it, love it!

Hope you enjoyed this fun technique and try it for yourself.  Get creative and pair it with some really fun colors!  I’d love to see them 🙂

Thanks for dropping in and …

Have a wonderful day ~
