Finally, a card to share

Hello. I hope you're all having a wonderful week. I finally stamped today -- out of necessity -- but that's OK. This card is one of the projects I'll be sharing in my workshop this weekend. Three different punches were used on this card.

The background is stamped with polka dot background and I also used the polka dot petal from the stamp set pick a petal. Rather than cut out the petals, I used the small oval punch to punch out the center of the stamped images. The flower center is done using the 1/2" circle punch. I also punched leaves and added some faux stitching. The stem is from the set stem silhouettes.

The corner piece is made using the photo corner punch, layering the 2 colors and adding a black brad in the center. The main image panel and the photo corner are both raised on mounting tape.

Recipe - stamps: pick a petal, stem silhouettes, polka dot
ink: purely pomegranate, groovy guava, wild wasabi
card stock: groovy guava, purely pomegranate, wild wasabi, taken with teal, basic black, whisper white
accessories: brayer, small oval punch, 1/2" circle punch, photo corner punch, black brad, mounting tape
