Circle Punch Flower Card

This card was inspired by a card that Sam posted on her blog which is absolutely gorgeous so you need to check it out.

Cardstock: sage shadow, very vanilla, ballet blue and lavender lace
Punches: circle ¾” and ½”
Accessories: Earth Elements® button, mini glue dot, SNAIL Adhesive®, lavender lace Stampin’ Pad®, Stampin’ Dimensionals® and Happy Birthday from 'God's Blessings' stamp set which can be found on page 114 of the current Idea Book and Catalogue.

I punched out 7 circles using the 3/4" punch (one in a different colour to go underneath the button and one for the leaves on the stem) and 5 using the 1/2" punch. I then stuck the small circles on the bigger circles before arranging them and sticking them to the very vanilla cardstock. I mounted the very vanilla onto sage shadow cardstock. I attached the Happy Birthday to the underneath of the sage shadow cardstock and mounted it using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and then stuck it onto the lavender lace then very vanilla card. I attached the button using a glue dot. The stem was cut free hand and I just cut the green circle in half for the leaves on the stem.
