Meet the Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch!

Have you met the new Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch from Stampin' Up?  It was introduced in the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog in January and is a BIG sister to the flower punches we already have!  At over 2" in diameter, it puts the other flower punches in the shade!  Gotta love it!  Like flowers in the spring, paper flowers are popping up in papercrafting projects everywhere you look and this punch is a fabulous tool for creating some fun and gorgeous flowers of your own!

The large flower on this card was made like the one on the box I posted here.  I twice stamped the large image from the With All My Heart stamp set on Pretty in Pink cardstock with Rose Red ink.  These were punched out with the Extra Large Fancy Flower punch, snipped with Paper Snips then curled with a Bone Folder and fingers.  I layered the two together with a Dimensional.  Next the small flower from the set was stamped and punched out with the Trio Flower Punch, a Gold Brad added to the center and attached to the base flowers with another Dimensional.

The flowers were attached to layers of Whisper White, So Saffron and Certainly Celery, which reflect the colors in the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper.  The front side edge of the card was punched with the Pinking Hearts Border punch; a 1/2" strip of the Sweet Pea Designer Paper peeks out from underneath the back edge of the card back.  "Happy Birthday" is from the Well Scripted set in the Occasions Mini.
