Woohoo, the new Boughs & Blossoms Bundle includes a punch. And not just any punch, a punch with pretty leaves and small flowers. This is fast becoming one of my new favorite punches in my stash. Today’s card is a lesson on layering.

I love creating layers and by using a variety of circles, you can create a focal image on any project. Because I used the new Heart & Home DSP, I’ve created a lovely soft springtime look.  My color palette includes Fresh Freesia, Basic Gray, Garden Green and Basic White.

Because you can easily create botanicals to add to your cards, the Bough Punch is a must-have. You can create two distinct images to mix and match.

By incorporating my Layering Circles die set, I was able to create a one of kind focal image with those beautiful DSP patterns. Not only that, I added even more texture with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. That’s another new item in your January-June Mini.
