Garden Page July 8th 2017

I found some Paper Piercing templates from Fiskars on clearance at Hobby Lobby and they had flowers and the little one was perfect to go with a Project Life or Pocket Style page for one of my Gardening layouts.

 I am using some 110 Pound White card stock and a 3X4 die.

I taped it with some painters tape to a piercing mat that was also on clearance from Hobby Lobby.
 Begin to punch in the holes that are on the template.
 I then look threw my alphas to find a black thin set to spell out the word bloom.

I am adding it to the card over wax paper to find placement of the other two flowers.
 I make a little pencil line template to help me keep the flower going around the word.
 Just double checking to make sure the third flower will work.
 And again after I finish punching the third flower.
 Using three strands of embordery floss and Washi Tape to adhere it to the back.
 Start with the outline first.

I did refer to the piercing mat for referance a few times.
 This part is totaly up to you.

I just did some crossed lines to fill it out.

The sky is the limit, no right or wrong.
 The center with again three strands of thread is easier.

I go in  a bit of a star pattern.
 I then go around the circle to fill it out and give some definition.
 All done and I LOVE it.
 Using my T-Squared ruler to try and attempt to get the "bloom" straight.
 I am a sucker for wood grain paper and had it layeing around a figured out it was perfect.

I used the X-ACTO punch to round the corners.
 I typed my journaling on my phone and sent it to my computer which houses Heavy Weight White card stock.

Cut into strips.
Added a doilie to add some interest and texture and fill in the card.
This is a photo over head of the plant in the pot.

Printed 4X6.
 Here is the filler card and flower blooms in size 3X4.
 I used a golden yellow chip board alpha sticker for my date.
