Greeting Card Idea - Stampin' Up! Paisley Petals - For You

Today's share is a Stampin' Up! greeting card featuring the Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper (DSP).  This card spotlights the technique called braiding.  This design from the Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper is perfect for this technique.  Here's the card:

Making the braid required a lot of measuring  and making straight, smooth cuts (some of mine aren't that straight though).  However, it's a cool technique.  The third picture below is a close up of the braid, which is highlighted with  Stampin' Up! Basic Pearls Jewel Accents.

Although the adorable Punch Bunch stamp set is no longer available, I used it for the sentiment.  The card stock used is the Stampin' Up! Baja Breeze, River Rock, and Whisper White.

Loving the Vintage Flowers as I do, I had to use a Baja Breeze one on the sentiment.  Other Stampin' Up! Products used are the Crimper, Scallop Circle Punch, and Photo Corners Punch.

 Hope you like my card, and any feedback is welcomed and appreciated.
