Everyone LOVES to get flowers!

They don't have to be real flowers. Use your Stampin' Up! punch to make a bouquet. We had our Stampin' Up! meeting and we were challenged to make a swap card for Mother's Day or a Spring Card. This is what I came up with. 

Here I used the 2-1/2" circle punch (or use the circle framelits)  to make a vase and the Blossom Bunch Punch to make the flowers. Super Easy!! I C.A.S.E.D this card from Connie Babbert. I changed mine a little bit from hers. See below for all of the directions on how to make this card. 

  • Stamp Sets: Grateful Bunch:  Available as a bundle with coordinating blossom bunch punch; Suite Sayings and Crazy about You for the inside.
  • Paper:  Whisper White, Lost Lagoon, Delightful Dijon scraps, Neutrals DSP, Sahara Sand scraps.
  • Ink: Basic Black Archival, Lost Lagoon, Delightful Dijon and Sahara Sand
