Blossom Petals Punch Baubles
I'm afraid I can take no credit at all for the design of this card as it was copied from an original design by a very talented lady at Valita's Designs & Fresh Folds. I thought it was so gorgeous I just had to have a go myself and, although quite fiddly so I wouldn't want to make a lot of them, I was very pleased with the result. It always amazes me when people come up with a use for a punch that is a million miles away from what it's intended for and I am very grateful for those clever people sharing their ideas. The baubles on the card are made from the Blossom Petals Punch, which are scored and then stuck together and if you would like to learn how to make them then click on the link to the blog above where you will find a brilliant tutorial. My card differs from the original in that I glued the edges of the petals and dipped them in Dazzling Diamonds, the string hangers were a line of glue with Dazzling Diamonds sprinkled on and the bow was made from some Silver Elastic Cord (sadly no longer available). The sentiment is from Contempo Christmas.
