Beautiful Bunch and Chevrons

I'm loving this new Beautiful Bunch set and the coordinating Fun Flower punch!  To have a punch that can cut out my flower in seconds is such a time-saver (plus it looks better than my hand-cutting, lol!).

Today I did the Embossing Folder Stamping technique (see here) on watercolor paper using Real Red, Coastal Cabana and Night of Navy.  This made a pretty bold background so I kept the card simple.  The flower was stamped in Night of Navy onto Real Red cardstock; a second flower was stamped on Coastal Cabana cardstock and the center punched out with the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch (again, gotta love those punches!).  I shaped the petals with a bone folder then assembled the flower with Dimensionals and centered with a Large Rhinestone (retired).  Loops of Coastal Cabana Baker's Twine were adhered to the card with Mono Multi Glue then the flower was adhered  with more glue.

Three Rhinestones were colored with the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities (love that we can do that now!) and added to the top right side.  A length of 1/4" Night of Navy ribbon (recently retired) was attached around the top two layers and over the top of the greeting.

I love this card, Margaret! The blending of the colors on the background is gorgeous. I tried the technique with Whisper White cardstock and it works well too.
