Red Rubber Designs: Be Happiness

Today, I have a some scrapbook embellishments to show using stamps and punches.  I saw this double punch technique with a scalloped punch on Pinterest and decided to try it with some flower punches.  It is a really clever technique to get more shapes out of one punch.  Gotta love that!
 I used the 2 six petal flower punches (1-1/4" and 1-3/4"
 I punched the 2 flowers.
 Then created a handle with some cardstock scraps,
 so I could hold the flower in the punch.
 Then, I rotated the flower so the petal would be divided 
in half and punched a second time.
 Now I have 2 twelve petal flowers.  
I punched a 5/8" hole in the the center of the smaller flower.
Then, layered the smaller flower on the larger with pop dots and added a button in the center.  {I think it looks a lot like a straw flower or daffodil}
Next to create the pocket, I used a coin envelope and cut the top so it was open.  I added some Kaleidoscope Brites cardstock to the pocket. 
 I added a finger grab for the card that slides in the pocket 
 The pull out card is 2-1/8 x 4" and I rounded the corners 
using the Corner Chomper.
I added the flower to the card with a pop dot 
and some Mia's Cottage ribbon to the pocket.
 Using Black Palette ink, I stamped 
a sentiment from "Be Happiness" on the card.
  Here is the finished page.
With the card out of the pocket.
