This week, and next at CASE-ing The Catty we are CASE-ing our favourite retiring punches or dies. This Leaf Punch is such a favourite, it will be staying on my shelf.
Floral Essence is a stamp to be included in the catalogue again, and it has a punch for the flower which will carry over too. This makes it very easy to produce a pretty card. What I hadn't realised until a friend mentioned it, was the Leaf Punch, pictured above, also co-ordinates with the leaf from this stamp set. This alone, was enough to encourage me to order it last year. Unfortunately, the Leaf Punch will not be continuing on in the Stampin' Up! range.
Floral Essence has some sweet sentiments, although 'Happy Birthday' comes from Here's A Card. It seemed a good pairing with the other sentiment. Most of the leaves are stamped onto the background with an extra one punched and tucked behind.
Again, using Floral Essence and both leaves are punched, one stamped and one from card. Such a useful punch. The flower was stamped & heat embossed onto vellum, before punching out. Some of the lovely white Tulle ribbon adds another soft touch.
It's a simple touch to place some leaves behind the art piece from Free As A Bird. It makes these birds feel right at home!
Next you will be checking out what the talented Sandra has made
We share our projects to inspire you to create and send cards. It would be wonderful if you CASE-d the Colours of the Ornate Garden Suite and shared your card or other project on our Facebook page.
I'd love you to choose my online shop to purchase from, use the Host Code when asked at check out, & I will send you a gift, along with a handmade card. It's extra hard at the moment to run an online business so any help you give by ordering is greatly appreciated. The items listed below were used in my project above, and link to that item in my online shop.
