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 I originally made one of the Gardenia Flowers when the Ornament Punch first came out!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!
