Pop of Petals So Much To Love Card
The Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper is designed to go with the Tropical Chic stamp set, but it's versatile enough to be a foundation for all kinds of floral cards. Ruth Bingle combined it with the 4-petal flowers from the Pop of Petals set.   
Background Basics—This card begins with a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of the Blushing Bride patterned paper from Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper mounted to a Shaded Spruce card base.  Next, a 5" x 1-1/2" strip of Tropical Escape DSP was fishtail cut and adhered to the background, then a 1" x 4" striped piece from the same DSP was added down the side.

Pretty Petals—Ruth stamped the Pop of Petals flower twice in Blushing Bride ink onto Whisper White cardstock, then punched it out with the coordinating Four-Petal Flower Punch.  She stamped another flower image in Shaded Spruce, punched it out and cut it in half to create the leaves for the flower. It's assembled with Glue Dots then topped with a black Faceted Dot.
Bundle It & SAVE—Purchase the Pop of Petals stamp set and matching Four-Petal Flower Punch together in a bundle and save 10%.
Sweet Sentiment—The Abstract Impressions greeting was stamped in Shaded Spruce onto a 2" x 3" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The banner was fishtailed and sponged with Shaded Spruce ink.  Finally, she tied some of the 1/8" Shaded Spruce ribbon from the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack around the banner and popped it up with Dimensionals.

Pop of Petals Front Flap Closure Card
I love this fun-fold card that I received from Renee Kohnke.  She also used the combination of the Pop of Petals flowers with the Tropical Escape DSP.  Great minds…!
Background Basics—She started by cutting a 1-1/4" strip off the edge of a traditional Basic Black card base, then she used the strip to create the flap!  She adhered a 3" x 5-1/4" piece of Tropical Escape Designer Paper to the front panel of the card.

Fantastic Flap—Renee scored the 1-1/4" x 5-1/2" strip that was cut off at the 3-1/2" mark and tucked the end of it underneath the 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White card inside layer.  Next, she stamped the sentiment from Varied Vases in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a 3-1/4" x 1" strip of Whisper White and adhered it onto the front of the flap. 
Beautiful Bloom—Renee stamped the Pop of Petals flower in Flirty Flamingo ink onto Whisper White and punched it out with the Four-Petal Flower Punch.  The flower is topped with a Rhinestone Jewel that's colored with a Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends Marker. 
Next, she stamped the leaf from the same stamp set in Old Olive and hand-cut it out.  Renee used these elements to create a little latch for the flap.

The flower is attached to the card front with a Glue Dot, then the leaf is tucked under the flower and attached with a Glue Dot onto the flap.  How clever!
