Blossoms Petal Punch












This is a card I made quickly on Friday (after the taxes) for a workshop that night!  Thanks to Jackie Topa—whom I believe was the originator of this embossed ribbon idea.  IMG_4513

You just adhere our satin ribbon to a piece of cardstock using the Big Shot Multipurpose adhesive sheets in the Occasions Mini catalog  #120805  (you just lay your cut ribbon on the sheet—press down cover—the lift and adhere to CS). Then you run it through the big shot using one of the embossing folders.  On my card, I punched 2 strips using the ribbon punch then adhered the ribbon to that. 

For the flower, I punched 8 of the small petals from the Blossoms Petals Punch #121808 in Marina Mist and 2 in Old Olive (same petal).  Curled them using my bone folder, then glued them with Tombow Multipurpose Glue onto a 1” circle (first layer 5 petals, then second layer with more glue-3 petals).  Glued the leaves the opposite way so that the ‘sharper ends’ were showing.  Then spritzed the whole flower with a mixture of alcohol and shimmer paint (#116854 pg. 195 of catalog).  After it dried, I applied one of the Vintage Flower Adornments #121879 from the mini catalog—love these things.

I stamped one of the frames from the Four Frames stamp set #123442 that you can get this month when you place a minimum $20 order.  I punched it out with our designer label punch #120907 from the mini catalog. 

I stamped ‘for the newlyweds’ because I needed a cute card for Dustin and Emily’s wedding the next day!

Oh, and I can’t forget to tell you how I did the embossing on the top of the white card.  I showed this awhile back—I took my Finial Press Embossing Folder  #115963 and cut it into several pieces of design so that I could emboss just small areas of my card!  It’s so much fun.

Love this one-the colors, design, everything! Did you actually cut up the embossing folder? Also love the card Tash did with the new Flower embossing folder-gotta have that--when I get the total use of my hands back, that is!! Miss seeing you,
