Punched Flower Regional Trade

This is the card I made for the 2010 Milwaukee Regional. When you are making 100 cards you need something EASY and this card wasn't too bad.

The leaves were done using the 2-Step Bird Punch and the flowers were punched with the Boho Blossoms Punch. The flowers are held together with a silver brad and raised up on Dimensionals. Stampin'Up! has so many great coordinating colors that it gave me lots of choices for colors to use. In fact my trades were not even all the same colors. It was a GREAT WAY to use up scraps! For addeed interest I pierced a row of holes using the Mat Pack. I would never have tried this free-hand but the template in the Mat Pack makes it so easy to pierce lines and shapes and to get the spacing perfect when setting a row of brads. The Mat Pack is one of my "must have" tools.

The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations.  I love that set, I'm so glad it is still in the catalog.  The thing I like best about this stamp set is that the sentiments are all the same SIZE.  I can design one card and make it work for any occasion because the sentiments are all the same size. 

Happy Stamping
