Build a Blossom stamp set and Blossom Petal punch

Here  is a card made with the Blossom Petal Punch featured in the Stampin'Up! mini catalog.  There is a coordinating stamp set which makes building flowers a sinch!  I was inspired by a card made by Rita Wright, another SU demonstrator.  The important things I learned from this card are:
1.  Run the card stock through the Big Shot with the embossing folder first then fold in half and score.  Embossing the paper changes the size and shape just enough to throw of that clean fold.
2.  Dying the white ribbon with reinkers gives a cool variation in the ribbon.

3.  The Framed Tulips folder is beautiful, but getting a clean, centered image is a trick.  I found the best place for the paper to be in the folder then added tape to the outside of the folder so I can line up the paper each time to get a centered embossing on each card.
I hope this helps when you try using your Framed Tulips Embossing Folder.
