Sending this card in to Stampin Up, as an alternative way to demo the Flower Punch -- just punch out the flowers, strap it to your light table and use the same as you would a brass embossing template. Our cardstock is thick enough!

Vickie, I was so hoping you would post it here. I love it, I love it, I LOVE it! I just love it! What a great idea to do dry embossing with the punchout leftover. I love the sponging over it, the layout of the card, the paper piercing, the crimping....everything! :) Can you tell I Love your card? *grin*

Thanks so much for sharing this idea! I've been having a blast making up some new cards using it (I'll post tomorrow). I didn't sponge over the embossing (yet), so I'll have to give that a try too. I LOVE the little pink center of your flower on the tag. It's soooo cute with the little dots.
