NC Demo Blog Hop for April, 2021 Pleased as Punch!

I love a punch!  Don't you?  Welcome to the NC Demo Blog Hop for April where we are Pleased as Punch to have you here.

Join us blog
You might have just come from Amy's blog or maybe you are just beginning here.  We are so glad to have you.  Be sure to visit everyone on the hop.  I can't wait to visit myself and see all the ideas.

I'm actually using two of the new punches in our upcoming catalog, the Elegant Tag punch and the Flowers & Leaves punch.  Why not put them together in one card!

I'm using some of our new In Colors as well.

The base of the card is Evening Evergreen that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score and fold at 4 1/4.  Stamp the large flower stem from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set around the outside of the card front in Evening Evergreen.

The next layer is Polished Pink.  It is cut to 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  The Basic White layer is 3 3/8 x 4 5/8.  Use the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder with this layer.  Adhere these layers to the center of the card.  HINT:  You can punch out the flowers from the center of this layer.  I got two punches out of it.  No one will ever know!  That's using the Flowers & Leaves punch.

Using the Elegant Tag punch, punch out 4 from the Soft Succulent card stock.  Emboss all of these with the Tasteful Textile EF.  Space all of these out on the card front and glue them on.  They will extend a little past the layers already placed.  That's fine.

Now, you need to make 4 flowers.  In total, you will need 8 of the largest flower and 4 of the smaller flower.  These are all from Polished Pink.  Sponge around the petals with a sponge dauber and the pink ink.  Curl up the petals with you Bone Folder.  You will also need 12 of the largest leaves.

Assemble the flowers.  Each layer of petals is placed a little askew from the layer below.

The centers of the flowers come from the Pansy dies.  The die I used will cut 3 center pieces at a time.  Each flower uses all three.

Glue a flower in the center of each tag.

The saying is from the Pansy Patch stamp set.  Stamp in Polished Pink on a 1/2 inch strip of Basic White.  Notch the ends.  Add this in the center of the card on dimensionals.  Pull out any leaves so they are on top of the saying, but not covering any words.

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is again from Pansy Patch.  Stamp 2 Polished Pink smaller flowers and punch.  Punch some leaves from Evening Evergreen.  Add all to the inside.
