Fancy Flower Focal...

This card was a lot of fun to make. And very quick also! Not a ton of stamping. Instead...the punches take Center Stage. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Fancy Flower Extra Large punch. I use it ALL the time!!! And I have been really loving it with the Dot, Dot, Dot single stamp. I just stamp those fabulous dots on cardstock first, punch out a circle, and adhere it to the middle of the flower. Too much fun!
The punches I used here: Scallop Edge Border, Fancy Flower, 1 3/8" Circle, and the NEW Decorative Label punch that is in the Holiday Mini!!!! SO FABULOUS!!! Colors I used: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Rose Red, and the color I can NOT get away from...Crumb Cake! The Designer Series Paper is Nursery Suite Specialty. Yes....this paper is designed for babies. But SO VERSATILE! I love the patterns in it for any day use! Here is a close up of the focal point...
I just punched everything out, sponged all the edges in Chocolate Chip, and then layered it all together. Again...had to use a button. :) Rose Red again...just the biggest one in the pack. (Can I tell you again HOW MUCH I LOVE these buttons?!?!? :) ) I love layering punched images...it's too much fun. Oh...and that strip of Chocolate Chip is textured cardstock...love the extra pop that gives. And of course I HAVE to use my Big Shot! :) Had to use the Polka Dot background on this card. I ran a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Crumb Cake through the Big Shot with the Polka Dot embossing folder. Then sponged the edges in Chocolate Chip and mounted it to my card front. I just like the extra pop that gives!

Anyway...enough details on this simple card! Hope you enjoy! Thanks for visiting!!!
