Paper Flower Card by Patty Bennett:

Above:  I've seen people punching shapes from old books or magazines.  I was going to do that and decided to use the fabulous A to Z single stamp on pg 42 of the Occasions Mini catalog – I stamped plain printer/xerox paper with the stamp in Basic Gray ink, then punched it out with our OH SO COOL Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch (4 times) then sponged each flower with some Creamy Caramel ink, sponged the edges in red, and poked a hole thru all the layers with the paper piercing tool, and added a new fabulous Red Epoxy brad!  Additional Occasions Mini products also featured in this card: leaves from the Sweet Pea felt pack, Red Satin Ribbon (embossed with the finial press folder and the Big Shot), Dot Dot Dot single stamp (pg 42), Fine Flourish single stamp (pg 42).  WOW.. how many NEW products was that!?

I needed several Thank You cards to send to customers in February, so I made up these adorable, quick and cute "Hugs" thank you notes…. these feature the new "HUGS" notes (item 118778, pg 19 Occasions Mini catalog) decorated with hearts from the Full Heart Punch (regular catalog, pg 187) and the new "Heart of Hearts" Embosslit die (item 117332, pg 15 in the mini catalog).  These 2 hearts layer perfectly together!

Embellishments include Epoxy Brads (pg 13 mini catalog), heart punchouts (from the Boho Blossoms punch, pg 187 in the catalog) and the fabulous new set called "With all my Heart", (item 118134, pg 12 in the mini catalog).  Each note is tucked into it's coordinating Glassine Rectangle Envelope (item 117227, pg 19 mini catalog).
