Gardenia Punch Art

Here's another card my Punch Class did this month.  I originally made one of the Gardenia Flowers when the Ornament Punch first came out!  I made it in Pretty in Pink with some Regal Rose sponging.  I decided I wanted to make a soft white and yellow card, so pulled out my Whisper White Cardstock to make the flower!



I punched 5 of the Ornament Punch from Whisper White cardstock and sponged the center and edges of the punches.  I folded them in half for some texture.  I adhered them all together, then added a 3/4 Certainly Celery Circle punch in the center.  I added some adhesive and Clear Micro Beads to the center (hurry…these are on the retired list!  I love using them for centers of flowers.)  I also punched two Certainly Celery Ornament Punch leaves, folded them in half, and added Certainly Celery Classic Ink to the edges.


In the background, I used the Scallop Square with Whisper White cardstock and trimmed off two of the scallops on the left side.  I ran it thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder.  I wrapped So Saffron Striped Ribbon around and tied.  I adhered it the the Barely Banana base card.  I added a Barely Banana "hello" greeing from Tiny Tags and punched with the Medium Jewelry Tag punch.  It is attached to the ribbon with Linen Thread.


Finally, I added two Xs from Itty Bitty Punches and Certainly Celery cardstock.  I love how this Gardenia Flower turned out!  I think my classes loved it, too!


Remember…my 50th Birthday Celebration is going on NOW!  Check out the details HERE!

This gardenia's will be on bright orange paper as the invitation for my daughter's bridal shower invitation.  Her colors are a soft white, soft green and bright orange (from bird of paradise) and she is wearing a gardenia in her hair when she will is married barefoot on the beach!  It is perfect.
