Everything Eleanor and a Paper Saving Tip

Can you figure out this paper saving tip from the photos?  The flower in the center of this card was stamped on dark blue paper and punched out. The same color was used as the base layer for the center piece. So . . . since the dark blue is the bottom layer, you can use it to punch the flower's circle. No one will know there is a hole in it. How's that for a paper saving tip?

The flower is from a  new stamp set called Everything Eleanor. There is some really gorgeous imagery in this set, the more samples I make with it the more I love this set. Check out this card to see how I used some of the other images in this set.

Just a few details on this project:
**Stamp the flower in white craft ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder BEFORE punching out the circle.
**I love how Stampin'UP!'s pearls are self-stick! It makes a beautiful center for the flower on this project.
**the colors used here are Night of Navy and Bashful Blue
**punches:  1-3/8" circle2-3/8" Scallop Circle  and Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch

You can get all the supplies to make this card from my Stampin'UP! store.
