Bunch of Blossom Punches!!

Morning all.

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......

All four are just lovely Lynda, If I had to choose my fave though, hmmm.... I think it would be the third one, the vanilla with the touch of green, something always appeals to me in vanilla, lol, but they are all great cards. You did another great job, I love popping by to visit you and see what sort of fantastic creation you do next xx
