~Making Vintage Cards W/ Flower Punches~

♡♡Good morning my crafty friends♡♡

Yesterday I sat down and played with my McGill punches again,
last time I made the Cracked "Faux" Ceramic Rose, this time I
made a Hydrangea flower and used it on a vintage style card.
After punching out the flowers, I hand inked each one (painstaking yes
worth it? YES!) then added a pearl in the center of each one with the
Viva Decor Pearl Pen. You have to use a small foam ball cut in half for
these flower, trust me just get the balls LOL I tried other ways with no success.
I used a Samantha Walker/Unity stamp for the title and the papers are
Core'dinations and Webster's Pages. It was a fun little project, I cannot
wait to sit down and make more flowers! :)

I am off to finish this cake for the baseball party, it is
a double layer HUGE baseball cake, I am trying to make fondant for the
first time, I will let you know how it goes and post pictures tomorrow
if I don't flop!! hahaha
Happy Saturday!

This is a beautiful card. It reminds me of Grandma. She always had hydrangeas in her yard and she loved lace! She passed a few years ago, but seeing this card gave me loving memories of her.

I LOVE Hydrangeas - my daughter had them as her bouquet in her wedding and we planted them at our new house when we moved and had to put in a yard. I want this punch so bad! Beautiful card showcasing this amazing punch Pinky!!!
