Fancy Flower Punch

What a cute way to "display" a stamped image. I used a piece of Marina Mist Cardstock, traced a curved edge to one side with a small plate, hand-cut it with my Paper Snips, embossed it with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder and glued it to the front of my card. The stamped image is a flower from the Always stamp set which is now retired but you can use any flower image. I stamped it with White Craft Ink and sprinkled Whisper White Embossing Folder and set it with my Heat Tool:

Add a Glimmer Brad to the center of the flower for dazzle! I opted to stamp my sentiment on the side of the card going vertical. It catches the eye! The stamp set is called Heard from the Heart and I also stamped and embossed it in the same way I completed the flower:

If you haven't tried the "Gathered Ribbon" that you see on this card yet, click HERE to view a tutorial on how to do it!
