Of course, I had to make a special card to celebrate the KICK OFF of PREVIEW WEEK!  I used Beautiful Bunch again…just love that stamp set and punch!  I think it makes a beautiful sunflower!  This card is made up of almost all NEW stuff!  Woohoo!

Beautiful Bunch

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Mossy Meadow cardstock folded in half.
  • On the 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Crumb Cake, add a 1 3/4 x 4 piece of Lullaby Designer Paper with the Hello Honey Stripe.
  • Wrap around the Hello Honey Satin Stitched Ribbon and tie a knot.
  • Stamp Let’s Celebrate from Sumthin’ Sumthin’ in Mossy Meadow in the lower right corner.
  • Use the Fun Frame Impressions Folder with Whisper White cardstock, then cut out.  Add to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp the Beautiful Bunch flower twice with Hello Honey on So Saffron cardstock and punch with the Fun Flower punch.
  • Stamp the flower again with Early Espresso Ink on Early Espresso, and punch out the center with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.  Add to the flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals and add a Rhinestone Jewel.
  • Use the other flower image from Beautiful Bunch and stamp with Mossy Meadow Ink on Mossy Meadow cardstock, punch with the Fun Flower Punch, then cut the petals apart to use as leaves.  Add to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Don’t you LOVE it???  I do!!!
