First daisies, then tulips, and now…Calla Lilies. Long the symbol of purity, holiness, and faithfulness, the Calla Lily is a beautiful flower for Mother’s Day. Did you know that the center of the Calla Lily is actually the true flower? What we call petals are actually a colorful leaf. You learn something new everyday!
Creating Calla Lilly Punch Art is easy with the retiring Christmas Bulb Builder Punch. Break down the fibers of the paper before punching to get not only some nice texture, but makes the paper more flexible as well. I give some other good tips in today’s video tutorial below.
In addition to the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch, I also used the Floral Essence Stamp Set and Layered Leaves 3-D Embossing Folder. All 3 are on the Last Chance list, with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch on sale for only $10.80! These prices won’t last long and are only while supplies last.
