Build a Blossom Thank You Card

Did I tell you that I wasn't going to get this stamp set and punch? I liked the idea of the Stampin' Up! Build a Blossom stamp set and the coordinating Blossom Petals Punch, but I thought it was too much work! After seeing so many beautiful samples, I was starting to cave when I WON both the stamp set AND punch as a door prize at Leadership Conference in January! I was meant to have it! {GRIN}

And I am having fun with it! Did you see the butterfly card I posted earlier this week? Here's a card using it the traditional way to make a flower:

I love the way this turned out! I used the Stampin' Up! Framed Tulips embossing folder to make a smaller frame on the Baja Breeze cardstock. (Click here to see my earlier post with a description on how I did that.)

And the blue ribbon flower in the middle of the button -- it's one of the vanilla Rosettes (#118774, $5.95 for 18) from the Occasions Mini Catalog. These beautiful ribbon flowers come in three different sizes. They are only available in Vanilla, but you can customize them to coordinate with your card by coloring them with markers! Yep, just a marker! Just color right on the ribbon to dye it! So easy!

It's kind of funny things that attract you to a card. For this card, I like the colors especially the striped green paper. Who'da thought?

I like how you layered the rose on the button for the centre of the flower. :)
