XL Flower it!


Here's another quick and easy card today. I really love this new XL Flower Punch in the Occassions Mini Catalogue. There are so many different types of flowers you can make with it, by changing the cardstock to tissue paper, using old magazines or book pages...scrunching or not, distressing or not...the list goes on!  These are really fun to make...try them, you'll love them!!

On this card I scrunched the flower and circles and inked them up for a distressed look. So pretty and so easy! The leaves are punched from the new bird punch also from the Occassions mini. 

I punched the sentiment out with the large oval punch and then punched a pink and brown scalloped oval, then cut the brown one in half to layer behnd the pink scallop. 

I also used the distressing tool and roughed up the edges of the Chocolate Chip layer. Hope you like it!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: Pink Pirhouette (retired), Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Mellow Moss
Ink: Close to Cocoa
Stamp Sets: Sincere Salutations
Accessories: Cuttlebug Folder, XL Flower Punch, Two Step Bird Punch, Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Corduroy Button
