Bold Blossom and Triple Layer Punch

Stampin' Up's new triple layer punches are the bomb! It really is like getting 3 punches in one. A switch on the punch changes it from one configuration to another. I played around with the new Blossom Bouquet punch and the Bold Blossom stamp set yesterday and came up with this card.  Both of the flower layers on today's card came from the same punch. The red layer is larger and creates a perfect mat for the smaller layer which also has cut-outs on the petals. The third layer (not shown here) is the same size as the smaller layer but with no cut-out areas. I hope you enjoy the bright, happy colors. They make me happy just looking at them.

Stamping Vogue Tips:
  • Choose your color scheme based on a sheet of Designer Series Paper. I would have never thought to put these colors together but they work perfectly with the DSP.
  • Wrap the bakers twine around the card several times and secure with a small piece of sticky tape for extra holding power.
  • Play with the 3 layers of the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch until you get the look you like.
  • Use your paper snips to trim around the butterfly and pop it up with a dimensional.
  • Finish off with the perfect little bit of bling - pearls!
