Pear Pizzazz and Ribbon Lace

After making my daughter's wedding stationery earlier this year, I ended up with a large pile of full length A4 strips of Whisper White card. How convenient then, that the new catalogue coming out on October 1st has a punch ideal for using up all those strips!

The lacey border on this card is simply threaded with the narrow ribbon, and finished off with some pearls. I just added a few white flowers and a spray of leaves to finish off at the top.

The flowers are made using the largest shape from the Boho Blossoms punch. I snipped in between each petal to make them longer, and then shaped them a little bit with my embossing ball tool. The centres are just the largest circle from the Cropadile, shaped into a cup shape and then inverted in the centre of the flower over a blob of glue.

Other: Basic Pearls, 1/8" Taffeta Old Olive, Lace Ribbon Border Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Cropadile, Little Leaves die
