An Enchanting Blossom Punch

I am blogging and watching the Olympic Opening Ceremony - wow!!!  


Today's offering is another card using the the Everyday Enchantment Organdy Ribbon and Brad Set you can get for free with an order of £45 or more - this offer is only on until the end of July so make sure you don't miss out! 
I took inspiration from a card I saw on Vicky's blog - she is a very talented fellow Pinkie so please check out her creations.  

I started by embossing a piece of Confetti White card with the Big ShotAdorning Accents Textured Embossing Folder. Then using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool I scored from the base of the card up to the impression left by the folder. This technique was demonstrated by Michelle Last at a Stampin' Up! Regional Training Event in Edinburgh and is a really effective way of adding interest to a card. I then wrapped the Lucky Limeade Organdy Ribbon round the card.  The flower was punched from the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper using the Blossom Punch. I coloured part of one of the stamps from the Mixed Bunch stamp set using the Calypso Coral Stampin' Write Marker, stamped it onto Confetti White card and punched it out using the 3/4" Circle Punch. This was then secured to the flower using one of the Brads from the free pack and popped over the ribbon using dimensionals. The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped in Lucky Limeade ink, punched out using the Word Window Punch and layered on a piece of Lucky Limeade card punched using the Large Oval Punch.  The card front was was matted onto a piece of Lucky Limeade card, with the base card in Confetti White.
