CAS Punched Blossom Thank You Card

The SU! Mixed Bunch stamp set and matching Blossom punch are real favourites of mine and I'm always very happy to see a card made using these products.  I recently saw this great card on Pinterest made by Marelle.  How fab that the Modern Label shape layers over the top of the Blossom punch!  My friend Jan very kindly lent me her Mixed Bunch set and Blossom punch so I could play until I received my own.  I know she'll love this tip about the Modern Label punch but rather than just telling her I thought I'd make her a card so she can see it for herself.

I've CASEd Marelle's card design, just changing a few little things.  I used the Square Lattice folder to emboss my panel, I punched a Rich Razzleberry blossom and embossed three vellum Modern Label shapes with the Square Lattice folder before assembling the blossom.  I put a rhinestone brad through the holes of an Old Olive button, attached that as the centre and popped the blossom up.  I used the plain side of the dotted Old Olive ribbon as my leaves and I stamped the Thank You from the Curly Cute set in Razzleberry ink to finish off the front.

I stamped some flowers inside the card with Razzleberry ink, one is full strength and the other two are stamped off once first.  I stamped and punched a flower for the envelope flap.  Finally, I stamped and punched Old Olive centres and added them to the flowers.
