Punch Art Flower for my August Meetup

Yesterday was the August meet and greet for my Meetup group here in the Bay Area.  A few of us got together and had some pie at Marie Callender’s and I brought a free make and take for everyone to do.  This month I decided to do some punch art and so I modified a past card I had made to use some new stamps and colors and came up with this card.

This was an easy card that used 7 punches in all, though you could modify this card to use fewer punches or more stamps.  Here are the steps to create it yourself:

  1. Punch the base of the flower using the extra large Fancy Flower punch
  2. Stamp the five petal flower image from Punched Posies hostess set, once on colored cardstock and once on white cardstock
  3. Punch out stamped images using the Five Petal punch
  4. Stamp the smaller six petal flower image from the Punched Posies hostess set on white cardstock and punch out the center using 1/2” Circle punch
  5. Layer these punched images together and glue
  6. Punch the leaf using the Small Oval punch
  7. Fold the oval in half and trim one side to form a point
  8. Stamp the vase using one of the ornament images from the Delightful Decorations stamp set on white cardstock
  9. Punch out using the ornament punch and trim the bottom of the ornament to form the flat base of the vase
  10. Stamp the sentiment from the Because I Care hostess set on white cardstock
  11. Punch out sentiment using the Large Oval punch
  12. Punch corners of base white cardstock with the Ticket Corner punch
  13. Stamp the stem using the stem image from the Punched Posies stamp set on base white cardstock
  14. Glue down onto your card base and your done!
