I have been excited to share this card with you. I played around and created this paper flower. It is easy to create. This card is one of five projects we will be making for Stamp Camp this month. I hope everyone locally will be able to join me next week for Stamp Camp.
- Notice the Polka Dot embossing on the Regal Rose™ background cardstock and the flap of the envelope. Both were easily created using the Big Shot™ and the Stampin' Up! Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder™. See my Big Shot™ video HERE to show you how it works.
- For the flower, I used a 1" X 12" piece of Kaleidoscope Designer Series Cardstock™ and punched along one long edge with the Scallop Edge Punch™. Then I ran the punched strip of paper through my Crimper several times to break down the fibers of the cardstock and make it more pliable.
- Punch a 1-1/4" Circle and cover it with strong adhesive like our Sticky Strip™. With the sticky side of the circle up, begin adhering the flexible piece of 12" cardstock to the outside of the circle. Continue going around the circle moving closer in to the center as you go. The 12" strip will go around approximately two times.
- The small four petal flower was created using the Stampin' Up! Floral Fusion sizzlits die.
- Using the Paper Piercing Tool™ and the Mat Pack™, poke a hole through the small four petal flower and the center of your large flower (1-1/4" Circle). Our beautiful Filigree Brad™ was the perfect finishing touch.
- Notice I used the Scallop Edge Punch™ on both the flower's edge and the edge of the Very Vanilla™ Cardstock.
This is a simple card and yet it has such a nice wow with the flower. It's even prettier than the picture shows. Go ahead and try making some paper flowers. I think you're going to really like this.TO ORDER Stampin' Up! Products ONLINE 24/7, CLICK HERE!
