In Colors Punched Flower

It was another smokin' hot day here in the Midwest, so the boys and I hibernated inside most of the day.  However, I was able to make a couple of different projects today.  Tonight I want to share a 3x6 card I made using my Stampin' Up punches and the new 2011 In Colors.  I used the Fancy Flower Punch to punch the Wisteria Wonder flower out which served as my base.  Next, using a piece of Calypso Coral Patterns DSP I punched out a scallop circle using the 1 3/4 in. Scallop Circle Punch.  The next two layers are punched out using the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.  I actually used a really super thin piece of cork for one of the flower layers and the pot.  Because this cork is exceptionally thin, I was able to use my punch and Big Bold Cupcake Sizzlit Die with it.  It really isn't much thicker than cardstock and I would never punch anything much thicker than that with my punches.   I'm honestly not sure where I got it.  I didn't even remember having it until I stumbled across it the other day.  Anyway,  the very center flower is punched using the Boho Blossoms Punch and then I added a Calypso Coral Designer Printed Brad.  The stem and leaves are made using the brand new Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon.  I am so in love with this new ribbon.  The colors I used were Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder and Very Vanilla.  I also used Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade Patterns DSP. 



Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednseday and try and stay cool!!  Take care.

Carrie,

Adorable flowerpot card and great use of those punches. What a great idea using cork for the base. It has been rather warm here too.
