Simply Soft Card

"Simply Soft" is one of the new Hostess Sets that will be in the new Stampin' Up! catalog.  I had to get this because I thought the flower images in it were so pretty.  The image here is a branch with small flowers and buds on it.  I had covered those flowers and buds with punched out ones.  The tiny little flowers on here are scraps that were left from when I used the new "Lace Ribbon Border" punch.  I don't save EVERYTHING but these little flowers I just had to save and I was glad I did.  They came in handy for this branch!  And they are SO cute.  I used a white gel pen to make a dot in the center. I'm sure I could have used a small round punch for that but I didn't want to be chasing dots and gluing them on.  I did glue on dots for the larger flower but they were bigger so it wasn't a huge task to take on!!

I actually used several punches on this card.  The "Lace Ribbon Border" punch, the "Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer" punch, the "Itty Bitty Shapes" punch.  I think I just got caught up in the moment of punching and had a blast. Those flowers were so fun to add.  I must have been in one of those "tedious" moods!!!  

My colors here are Whisper White, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise.  I had run out of the Tempting Turquoise ribbon but one nice thing is you can dye your own using your inkers!!!  I always purchase white ribbon in the various sizes so I can color my own.  You just never know when you need a matching color and if you have white ribbon and inkers you can match all of your card stock!!!

This was a fun card to make.  I'm not sure what I am going to use it for but I do know it will sit on the ledge for a month before I file it with the "miscellaneous" cards!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
