Festive Flower Builder Punch - not just for Christmas!

When I first saw this punch I fell in love with it!  It was in the Christmas catalogue and made the most beautiful poinsettias- but I did wonder if it would make other flowers and it does!

I love the versatility of Stampin' Up! punches and things are not what they seem at first glance.

This Thank You card was very simple to make and I love how the bottom petals are just outlines and show through the lovely new paper from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper pack, a really lovely paper pack that won't break the bank!

You might think that the outlined petals are difficult to do - well they're not actually.

Firstly you punch out the small petal, making sure you have some card around the outline - so don't try and scrimp on your paper here!

Then you take the punched piece and line up the punched out piece in the large petal- make sure it looks an even amount of paper all around.
The punched out piece on the left and then slid into the punch

And there you have the outlined petal - so easy and I think it looks lovely.
Might have to experiment in the next few days and see what other types of flowers can be made with this idea.
Happy Crafting
