I made this card a while back and did a tutorial for a downline newsletter but I just realized that I never posted it on my blog! So, here you go….
First, get your supplies ready…. (note- NQN means not quite navy)
you will need:
Cardstock: Not quite navy 5 1/2 x8 1/2 and 3x 3 1/4. Bella Bleu DSP 5 1/4 x4, very vanilla 2 3/4×3, kraft 4x 3/4. You will also need scraps of NQN, kraft and Bella Bleu for scallop circles and circles.
Punches: 1" circle, 1 1/4" circle, scallop circle and scallop trim border
Stamp sets: Vintage Vogue, well scripted
Ink: Not quite Navy
Misc: kraft taffeta ribbon, sponge
Run your scraps through the crimper so they will be easier to scrunch and work with later.
Punch out 6 scallop circles- 2 of the kraft bella bleu, 2 of the blue bella bleu, and 1 each of kraft and NQN. Also punch out 2 of each size circle (one from each of the DSP colors)
Now crumple all of the punched out circles and scallops into little balls and then flatten them back out again.
Stack them up from biggest to smallest and I alternate colors so you have blue, kraft, blue, kraft, and so on. (I actually think I goofed in this picture and have the bottom ones backwards). Then take your paper piercer and poke a hole through the center and stick a brad in there to hold them all together.
Starting scrunching your circles again from the top one down as tight as you can get them all.
When you get all of the layers done, you can gently unfold them a little bit so it looks like a blooming flower.
THen to finish making your card, Stamp the vine from Vintage vogue onto the vanilla piece and stamp your sentiment in the top corner using the NQN ink. Use the scallop trim border punch to punch along the edge of your kraft piece. Adhere this piece to the bottom of your NQN piece and trim the ends so the scallops are the same on both edges. Sponge edges of scallop border and vanilla piece with NQN ink. Wrap ribbon around the bella bleu dsp and adhere it to the NQN half sheet. Adhere the rest of the pieces and attach to front of card. The flower is attached using a dimensional.
