I have used the sentiments from the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set on other projects because I love the words and the script – but if occurred to me that I has overlooked the flowers and the coordinating Blossom Builder Punch for far too long. Today’s card puts that right and gives me a chance to do some 2-step stampin’ which this stamp set was designed to do!
Card base: 11 x 4 1/4 Mango Melody Card ~ scored @ 5 1/2
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Sahara Sand Card
Layer 2: 5 1/8 x 3 7/8 Very Vanilla Card
Ink Colors: Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green and Sahara Sand
The background effect used the Gallery Grunge Stamp set, I then stamped the stem and the leaves directly onto the card. The flowers were stamped onto a scrap of vanilla card – the outlines in Sahara Sand and the 2nd step which is the ‘filling’ with the Mango Melody. As Bunch of Blossoms is a photopolymer set it makes lining up a real snap.
The petals were then punched out – the larger petals were left flat but the 2 smaller petals were flipped over and ‘cupped’ using the scoring tool from my Simply Scored Scoring Tool – then attached to the card with a mini Stampin dimensional.
I used the 1/2 circle punch to cut a couple of ‘nicks’ to wind my Linen Thread around, the greeting was cut using 1 1/4 circle punch layered onto Sahara Sand card cut with 1 3/8 Scalloped Circle Punch.
