I had been fascinated by some of the paper flowers I saw on Blogs that I visited. Even with th 40% off coupon at Michaels and AC Moore the price was prohibitive. It seemed like every color I saw was not the color I was working with that week. So when I found the directions in the Winter issue of Paper Creations magazine, I was thrilled. I went home that night and made this flower. It was so easy and so fast too.
I cut three circles of graduating sizes, ran my Stampin UP Very Vintage roller over the card stock, spritzed it with Glimmer Mist and then I modged podged them. I distressed and rolled the edges inward with my craft knife, glued them together and sewed a button on it. Awesome don't you think? The card stock is actually the red color that mats the card. It was so much fun and really economical because you can make a flower in the exact color of cardstock you want. (You don't have to modge podge it, but that is my current new love.
The brown line going across the card is actually grosgrain ribbon. I liked the way it came to a point when it attached it to the card stock. The leaves are from the SU Bird punch. All paper is SU.
Quick and fun card to make. Let me know what you think or any suggestions on improving. Have a great day!
