Today I decided I would totally step outside of my comfort zone and try the challenge over at Dynamic Duos.
I am seriously NOT a yellow person at all...and this combination made me think of nothing but bumble bees. All I wanted to do was use my Honeycomb Embossing Folder and totally run with it. But that would have been within my comfort zone to do just that! So, I decided to move outside and put together a black and yellow card and to embrace the dessert option of a shaped/fun fold as well. I decided to try my hand at one of those File Folder Cards that I have seen everyone on Pinterest doing using the fantastic Envelope Punch Board. If you haven't tried one of these before, I suggest checking out Angie's Video Tutorial over at Chic 'N Scratch - she has a TON of video tutorials and does AMAZING work. I used her tutorial to help me figure out the ins and outs of these types of cards - Thanks Angie!
For the flower, I used the Blossom Punch as the base and then punched 3 labels using the Modern Label Punch. They fit just perfectly with the Blossom Punch to form a great outlined flower. I also used the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch to punch out the centre of the flower.
