Blushing Bride Blossom

Blushing Bride Blossom

I love the  grey satin ribbon teamed up with the yummy colors of the Twitterpated DSP papers.  I've been working on my bow-making skills and find that it is a work in progress and that my results vary greatly depending on the ribbon I work with.  This double bow is tied with linen thread and capped off with a Blushing Bride button from the Twitterpated Designer Buttons collection, #125579 in the Mini Occasions Catalog.

You'll be surprised - but I used 5 punches to create this simple card!  Yes ma'am --- 5.  Here's a photo of two of the punches I used:

The Power of Punches 
The main embellishment is a flower, created by stamping a blossom from the Mixed Bunch stamp set, #125535-wood or #125537-clear, using Blushing Bride ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  The center of the flower is created using the 1" flower center, inked with my Island Indigo Stampin' Write marker, then punched with the 1" Circle Punch, #119868.  I added a solid circle of Blushing Bride using the 1-3/8" Circle Punch, #119860 as a mat.  The Blushing Bride petals behind the stamped blossom were created using the Modern Label Punch, #119849.  I punched 3 labels, cut them in half and worked each "blossom" with my bone folder, then attached them in between the stamped blossom petals.  I added a Basic Pearl to the center of the flower, which is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals, #104430.

To create the tiny and delicate scallop edge along the center embossed strip of Blushing Bride cardstock, I used  the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, then split that down the middle (cutting length wise between the 2 rows of tiny dots).  I added my Snail adhesive to the back of the embossed paper, then placed the scallop edges --- they were so narrow, I couldn't put the adhesive directly on them.

I will add a sentiment banner when I'm ready to use the card, but for now, I really like using up some of my Twitterpated scraps.
