THIS IS ONE OF THOSE CARDS...

Occasionally, I make a card that hits-the-spot with my local stampers... This is one of those!  Why?  It's simple.  It's timeless.  It's season appropriate.  It's event generic.  And... The little 3-D flowers embellished with the tiny pearls are  f a b u l o u s ly   s w e e t, and turned this ordinary card into a little masterpiece...

HERE'S HOW:  1. Punch the little flower from Card Stock.  2. Place each punched flower on the Mat Pack foam.  3. Press center of flower with large end of the Stylus Tool.  (It bends like magic.)  4. Adhere the flower to the card with a dab of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  5. Position a Pearl in the center.  ALSO:  To add dimension to the vase, sponge a shadow on one side.

One tiny little note from me to you... I used a retired punch (the Trio Flower) to make this card, but when I made the discovery, I tried the same technique with the Boho Blossoms Punch, and it worked just the same.  I intended to change out the flowers, but... Oh well...
