Beautiful Bunch Again!

OK…yes, I admit it…I’m slightly obsessed with Beautiful Bunch right now.  I honestly did not think I would like it as much as I do!  It’s easy because it has the coordinating punch.  And, quite simply, it makes beautiful cards so easy to make!  And, this time I only used a single bloom instead of the double that I’ve been doing.  I also matched it with the GORGEOUS, YUMMY Gold Soiree Designer Paper.  I finally cut into it!  I love the silky feel to the paper and the shimmery gold in it!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Pistachio Pudding and I rounded the corners on the bottom.
  • I cut a 3 x 6 piece of Gold Soiree Designer Paper, then placed it at an angle going across the top of the card and snipped off the excess.
  • I added a 1/4 x 5 piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock across the seam, and trimmed off the excess.
  • Let’s Celebrate from Sumthin’ Sumthin’ was stamped with Mossy Meadow Ink on a diagonal.
  • I stamped the Beautiful Bunch flower with Calypso Coral Ink on Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock and punched with the Fun Flower Punch.  I stamped it again with Mossy Meadow Ink on Pistachio Pudding cardstock and punched with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.
  • I added a little rhinestone in the center for a little bling!

It’s a WOW for me!  Although the design is very CAS, the Gold Soiree shimmers in the background and the flower pops!  I love it!

I agree that the Gold Soiree specialty paper is gorgeous and it makes this card so beautiful with little effort. I love the Pistachio Pudding with it.
