Three For You Punch Box

First of all I want to apologise for my general posting slackness of late. I have my first ever technique class coming up this week and I have been getting ready for that. I am really, really looking forward to it...I hope the attendees enjoy themselves (oh, and learn some new techniques ;-). I'll post the cards that we are making here on my blog after the class. The techniques are Crayon Resist and Emboss Resist.

So, I was feeling guilty about not having anything new for you to look at, so I made this little card for you this afternoon.

The background cardstock is Blue Bayou Textured Cardstock and I LOVE it (Blue Bayou and Textured cardstock!!). The next layer is Whisper White (no secrets there). The next layer is Soft Sky. I have punched the three flowers out using the Trio Flower Punch from the Three For You Punch Box. I also stamped the three flowers (from the Punch Box) in Pumpkin Pie on the underlying Whisper White layer. I have used Circle Rhinestone Brads in the centres of the flowers. The whole Soft Sky layer is mounted up on Dimensionals. The 'Just For You' sentiment is also from the Three For You Punch Box, and has been stamped in Blue Bayou Classic Ink (using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig).

The two ribbons are from the positively divine District Ribbon Originals selection (I'm expecting an email or two about this know who you are...but I just couldn't resist ;-).

And that is it, not very hard at all!
Thanks for looking,

Ahh, I see you caved in, LOL! I must admit the Beachfront & Sherbet ones ALMOST made it into my last order but I was strong! I've also held off with the 3 for you punch box, hoping we'll get that as a special like they did in the US last year. Good luck with your techniques class. Can't wait to see what you've come up with.

I really like this card and the colours are great! In the UK we have the Three for you on special in June, so after seeing your card I am definitely going to have to get it now. (it has been on my wish list for 6 months, LOL). Good Luck with your techniques class, I had my first one on Tuesday, lots of fun!

Stunning, love it! I've been so tempted by the Ribbon Originals, too. I'm still holding back, though ;)

In the catty that wide ribbon looks reddish, I assumed it was ruby red, your photo looks like pumpkin pie, I think I might have to get it now!
