Easy Handmade Card Featuring Vase Builder Punch

Hello, my crafty friends. I have been trying to use punches more and more in my stamping so this week I decided to use the stamp set and punch inspired by our Million Sales Achiever Mary Fish - Varied Vases Stamp Set and Vase Builder Punch. Let's take a look at this super easy, handmade card.

The card base is a top fold (cut 5.5 x 8.5, scored at 4.25) in Sahara Sand cardstock. The embellishment build is two coordinating dies from the Layering Squares collection, but they could easily be two straight-edge squares (cut 3x3, 2.5x2.5). The vase and flowers are punched from a scrap of the 2019–21 in color DSP / Pretty Peacock. The sentiment is stamped on Whisper White with Pretty Peacock and hand cut. I love this! 

Now I did not stamp a background using coordinating ink, but you sure could if you like. Instead, I dressed up this card with two in color Faceted Dots along the top, left edge (and two hard-to-see smaller dots centered on the vase), and a short strip of scrap Pretty Peacock with a hand-cut flagged end.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I sure hope you have enjoyed my Vase Builder card featuring the Varied Vases Stamp Set. I would love it if you would give this card a try, maybe even in another in color or use the other coordinating stamp set - Vibrant Vases. Take a picture of your card to share with us all. Please leave a comment below with a trail to find you so I can find you and see your creations.

Lots and lots of business discussed below, please keep reading after the supplies list.

Stamp On!!
