Small Bloom Punch

This is going to sound strange but this is the first time I used the Small Bloom Punch!  This punch is currently available as one of the 2020 Sale-A-Bration choices with a $100 (US) order.  It is a great size and perfect for cards.


I made this card for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge 601, #CCMC601.  


Old Olive is my go to color for foliage and the leaves in the Birthday dies are my current favorite for small leaves.  To go with the leaves I used the Small Bloom Punch for the Purple Posy flowers and the Pretty Peacock for the card base and flower centers.


I wanted to add some additional texture so I also used the Shimmery White embossing paste.  The polka dot stencil is from the Basic Pattern Decorative   Masks which debuted in the 2019 Holiday Catalog and is still available on the 2019 Holiday Catalog Carryover List.  


The Purple Posy layer is 5-1/4" x 8-1/4", scored at 2-1/8" & 4-1/4".  This is a simple and easy fun fold.  The embossing paste was only applied on the front panel.


Are you wondering where those Pretty Peacock embellishments are from?  Here's how I made them.  

  • Ink up a scrap piece of Pretty Peacock cs with Versamark ink
  • Sprinkle Glittery Goodness (mix of Clear Embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter) over it and heat emboss
  • Punch out circles, place them in the center of the flowers, apply Shimmery Crystal Effects (Holiday Catalog Carryover item) over them, & set aside to dry

Now you can make glittery embellishments in any color.

Now it is time to check out what the other design team members made for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.
