Our first card this week was this one using the Grateful Bunch stamp set and coordinating Blossom Bunch punch.

Using a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White card stock, we scored all four sides with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.

Score 1/8″ and 3/8″ in from the two long edges of the card stock, using the place markers as guides.

Turn the card stock 90 degrees and then again score at 1/8″ and 3/8″ in from the two short edges of the card stock, using the place markers as guides.

 

Turn the scored card stock over and stamp your leaves image (Old Olive Classic ink) on the side with the raised scored image.  Then stamp the flowers using Watermelon Wonder classic ink.  Sponge the centers using Sponge Daubers and  Daffodil Delight classic ink for the two largest and the Daffodil Delight marker for the smallest flowers and then punch them out.  It’s great that the Blossom Bunch punch is designed to punch all three images at once!

Choose your own greeting to personalize your card.

 

Attach your flowers with a dab of SNAIL adhesive, a Mini Glue Dot or a Stampin’ Dimensional.   Perhaps pop up just one of the flowers with a Dimensional and use SNAIL or a Mini Glue Dot for the others.  The choice is yours.  Whichever you choose, just have fun!  Make several cards at one time so you’ll have one ‘at the ready’ when you need a last minute card.
