Punch Art Lotus Easel Card

Every month our team decides on a card style that we will swap. This month was my turn to choose. I suggested we make cards using punch art flowers. Now usually my cards are done during the last few days of the month (I work best under pressure), but I was so excited to try a technique I saw on Valita's Design and Fresh Folds blog that although it's only Feb 1st, my cards are all done.

Thanks to my team lead's generous loan of some punches here is the result (Thank you Carol).

I used the stamp set Precious Butterflies, the sentiment inside the card has already become one of my favorites:

Friendship is precious,
not only in the shade,
but in the sunshine of life.
--Thomas Jefferson

Although Valita's lotus flowers were made with the small leaf from the Blossom Petals Builder punch, I substituted it with the 5-Petal Flower punch (it saved on paper and I could punch once and get 5 petals by simply cutting to the centre between each petal). I couldn't resist using the Wisteria Wonder cardstock and ink to give this card the softess I was looking for, then added Dazzling Details to the tips of the long flowers and Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on the open blossom to give them just a touch of glimmer.

Thanks for stopping by,
