Blossom petals punching for christmas!

Pin It
Hi all, another awesome spring day here today. you may have noticed the new banner on on my blog, AoZora School is the orphanage school in India where our daughter taught. They have since had to move out of the buildings they were renting for the school and orphanage and are raising funds to build their own. If you feel you can give to help someone else have a better quality of life then pop over, have a read and donate generously I know your kindness would be greatly appreciated.

My card and bauble today comes as inspiration from Jessica of Kinderstampo blog. I watched her video on how she made her simple but very elegant Christmas card and she mentioned in there to try other shapes so I thought I'd give the blossom petals punch a whirl. I did come across Ellen's idea from Blinkin, thinkin & Inkin on using the blossom petals punch as little Christmas ornaments also. Just to do the right thing and link these talented creators back :)
So my card was made in the same way as Jessica's video. I used 4 of the 2nd and 3rd largest petals to make these. and 12 of the largest petals for the bauble.

Why not try this simple but elegant Christmas card and bauble gift this Holidays. Use your Blossom Petals punch for something other than flowers making it twice the value. All of the 3D parts on this can be folded flat for easy postage which is great! Instructions below are for the bauble only. enjoy

Blessings to you

and a last thought

“I will listen to what God the Lord will say;

he promises peace to his people...”
(Psalm 85:8, NIV)

As always WOW! Stunning card and ornament.

The one on the right hand side of the card also looks like it could be used as the top of a hot air balloon. Thanks for the inspiration.
