What a creative way to use a circle punch together with an oval punch to make an adorable punched flower.
I saw this idea at Convention and couldn’t wait to try it myself. To make this flower, I used a 3/4" circle punch with the large oval punch. I also made petals using the small and wide oval punches with different sized circle punches and they all worked.
This card also uses the Sweet & Sour Specialty designer series paper. The colours of this paper are Rose Red and Pumpkin Pie. I used the Sweet & Sour paper for a layering piece on top of the Rose Red card and Whisper White and Pumpkin Pie layers as well as to create three of the six petals.
To cover the center of the punches I used a Pumpkin Pie button and then decided to follow through with more Pumpkin Pie and used the 1/4" grosgrain ribbon.
And, guess what? No stamping required.
