This is my card for this week's Fab 'n' Funky blog challenge. The theme was 'Die cut or punches', so for my card I have used a range of Stampin' Up punches.
I begun by stamping the baubles. The stamp I used is from a set called Christmas Contempo. This ink pads I used were So Saffron, Cherry Cobbler and Pear Pizzazz. Once the image was stamped I used Ornament punch to punch them out. I stamped the flower image with a white craft ink pad onto dark red card. The flower stamp is from Punch Potpourri stamp set. I punched these out with Boho Blossoms punch. I also punched the branches using Two-Step bird punch.
On a kraft card blank I added a square of white card. In three corner I added a brown card photo corner punched with a Photo Corner punch. I stamped the greeting using white craft ink pad onto a label punched with Decorative Label punch. The greeting is from Contempo Christmas stamp set. I added a flower to the Label.
To finish the card I added faux stitching, gold lines to the baubles and gold Dimension Pearls to the centre of the flowers.
The punches, stamps and ink pads used items are all by Stampin' Up.
