Petal Punching

Hello everyone.  I'm really in love with all the new Stampin Up colors and punches.  For this card I used poppy parade, pear pizzaz, peach parfait and concord crush.  Aren't the colors yummy together?  The little envelope at the bottom left is made with the new large petal card punch.  I used vellum cardstock and folded up 3 sides, and used a little adhesive on the bottom petal to keep it closed.  If you've never used Stampin Up's vellum cardstock, you should give it a try.  It is sooo thick! 
I used the new hostess set called Cute by the Inch for the little pull-out.  I put a piece of ribbon on the back of the little square to help pull it out.  I frayed the ribbon by pulling on a piece of the thread until I liked the amount that raveled. 
The large flower is made from a bigz die called daisies #2.  A cuttlebug border embossing folder was used to mimic the punched scallop border.  The sentiment on the flower was stamped using the Stem Sayings stamp set.  A new Stampin Up rhinestone and some sponging on the flower petals finishes this one off.  Thanks for stopping by today.

I like all of the details on this sweet card. Very clever idea to make the petal card punch into an envelope.
