Stampin' Up Mistletoe & Holly Paper Pumpkin Alternate Card III - Flower Bouquet

When I saw the Mistletoe die cuts in the new Stampin' Up Mistletoe & Holly Paper Pumpkin kit, they reminded me of the vases you see in art magazines with all the fancy designs painted on the vase.  So, I designed a flower vase with some tulips in it for and alternate Paper Pumpkin card.  Let's take a look:

The only thing on this card that wasn't in the Stampin' Up Mistletoe & Holly Paper Pumpkin kit is the sentiment.  Since I designed a non-Christmas card, I stamped a sentiment from a past Paper Pumpkin kit called Happy Thoughts on to a piece of the lined Envelope.  I punched it out with SU's Washi Label Punch, tucked it in the bouquet and added a Stampin' Dimensional toward the end of the label.  I also gave a little curl to the end of the label.

I partially die cut the second largest SU Deco Label Framelit Die and trimmed off the end so it would look like a vase.  I wrapped the Linen Thread, that was included in the kit, around the vase two times and then tied it into a bow.  The vase was then adhered to the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.

I trimmed off the top of two of the Mistletoe die cuts (You will have to wait until tomorrow to see what I did with them) and adhered it to the vase with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I then scattered some of the pearls around on the Mistletoe.

The tulip pieces were punched with SU's Bird Builder Punch using the wing part of the punch.  I glued three of them together to form a tulip.

The stems were fussy cut from the white with green stripes card base.

The leaves were punched using the wing portion of SU's Bird Builder Punch.  I double punched one leaf to make the smaller, elongated leaves.

I adhered the stems to the back of the tulips and adhered the stems into the vase with MonoMulti Purpose glue.  The tulips where then adhered to the top of the stems with a Stampin' Dimensional.  Then I used MonoMulti Purpose glue on the bottoms of the leaves and tucked them into the vase around the stems.
