Simple Stampin’ Up! Sunflower with a Punch!

I reached for my Blossom Petals Builder Punch for today’s card, using it in a different way than on yesterday’s project.  The Stampin’ Up! Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder gave the sunflower a gorgeous “needlepoint” texture.  Very chic!

    This card is beautiful, bright and encouraging. I just purchased 2 more embossing folders and I am going to try this technique with them.
    Thanks for sharing

  18. Hello Mary: I absolutely love the way the sun flower “melts” into the white paper, so pretty and bright. Another great way to use the embossing folders.
    Thank you.
