I got to play with my Blossom Punch. There are LOTS of these types of cards out there now, but the one I sourced inspiration from was here on Eileen Lefevre's blog. I loved the pop of red. We did not (and still don't) have the DSP she used on her card here in Australia yet, but may soon. I had a did through my stash of DSP's and came up with the following. I made a stack of them and now have once again broadened my stash.
Here they are......
These are with Whisper White.....
and these on Very Vanilla........
I made a couple of changes in that I did not have as may layers and I also made the embossed inset slightly smaller. Got to use a stack of buttons too. changed the leaves on some as well....can't have 2 cards the same now can I??? For those of you who have not seen this done before, the embossed panel is punched with the blossom punch and then a matched flower from the DSP is placed offset to this one and on dimensionals. This pic may explain it a little better.......
The banner is "waved" slightly by popping the middle of it up on dimensionals.
Here are all 4 together......
