Paper Piecing using Breathtaking Bouquet - Part 1

The large flower image on the Breathtaking Bouquet background
stamp works well for today's fun technique: Paper Piecing

The concept is easy:
stamp the same image several times on different color paper
Cut each image and reassemble the parts in different colors

Card featuring Paper Piecing and made with Stampin'UP!'s large flower background stamp: Breathtaking Bouquet

For this first card I simply layered 
the yellow piece on the darker base

 The gold heat embossing adds some extra shine.

With the darker colors and "busyness" of the image
the challenge was how to make the sentiment
fit in, be seen but not overwhelm the card

The solution was to heat emboss on Vellum 
and layer on punched pieces.

Today's paper pieced project was a simple 1-layer card.
For an example of more complicated paper-piecing
check out this card using the (retired) Lovely Lattice stamp set.

Or check back tomorrow for a more complicated card
made with Breathtaking Bouquet.
