Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch/Double Pocket Card Tutorial

16 May

This new Summer Mini is fantastic and I’ve chosen to highlight my favorite new toy inside…the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch!  It’s called a triple layer punch because you can punch 3 different items that can all be layered!  My first project also features the Hello Blossoms individual stamp which is also in the Summer Mini Catalog.  In this one, I just chose to use a single-punched flower as an accent.

Stamp Set:  Hello Blossoms
Embossing Folder:  Elegant Bouquet
Colors:  Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Melon Mambo, US White, Old Olive

My next project is a little less bright, but is a favorite of mine.  In this one, I’ve also used a new stamp set called Pretty Postage.  This set coordinates with the new Postage Stamp Punch also in the mini.  This is a great little purse/card that could be used for a gift card holder or just as a regular card.

Stamp Set:  Pretty Postage
Big Shot Dies:  Top Note, Tasteful Trim, Oval Scallop Frame, Finial Press Embossing Folder
Punch:  1/8″ Circle, Postage Stamp Punch, Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer
Colors:  Blushing Bride, Marina Mist, Certainly Celery, US White
Accessorie:  Blushing Bride 1/2″ Stitched-Poly Ribbon, Hemp, 5/8″ Jumbo Brad

Helpful hints: 

  •  To create the purse, place your folded 5-1/2″ X 4-1/4″ card stock on the top note die so that the fold of the card is just inside the cut mark on the die.
  • To create the handle, you will need 1 of the scallop oval frame cut in half.

Project #3 is also in our subtles colors.  This is a card that is easy to make and makes for a unique card.  The outer card dimensions are 4-1/4″ X  8-1/2″ with 1-3/4″ cut off the front.  The smaller folded card is 8-1/2″ X 3″.  In this card, I chose to use the outline that is punched with the flower on the Blossom Bouquet punch and the flower itself for a background.

Stamp Set:  Hello Blossoms
Colors:  Certainly Celery, Pink Pirouette, US White, Pretty in Pink (Marker), Wild Wasabi (Marker)

Well, all good things must come to an end.  Here’s  a fun card once again using the flower, but this time combining it with the background image which is also punched.  I’ve added a center on the flower with the 1/2″ circle punch.  This is a double-pocket card.  I think it’s great to use by including your sentiment in the back pocket and a gift card in the front pocket.

Stamp Set:  Flower Fest, On Your Birthday
Colors:  Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, US White
Punches:   Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch, Butterfly, ½” Circle, ¾” square, 1-1/4” square
