Punched Posies Swap

I haven't signed up for a swap in 50 years...well maybe not that long! Its a first for a very long long time. Since this swap is with some of my wonderful Stampin Up customer friends, there was no rules! Just had to include an envelope. I used our 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 square envelops and cut 12x12 card stock to fit.

I stamped using the level 2 hostess set from the summer mini catalog Punched Posies. Stamped on white card stock using Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink and Perfect Plum Ink and punched the posies out using the scalloped punch. The background piece is the Big Shot clear square scalloped die in pretty in pink card stock. The envelope is stamped using the same color combo too.

The stems and leaves are in my fav certainly celery card stock. I had cut out the stems in a "curved" shape, just following the last cut line with scissors. Glue the pretty in pink sq on center front of card, glue on the stems. Ignore the little slot punch under the stems that was a never mind - don't need that hole now!

I punched out a 3/4" circle, fed the circle back in punch and punched out the leaf shape as shown. Pretty nifty huh! I added a little detail to the leaves shown in the next photo, using Stampin Up's totally awesome white gel pen.

I added some dazzeling diamonds glitter (hard to see on photo) to posies center, attached with a dimensional. Tied on a ribbon, attached with a glue dot.
