I made this card Saturday and I really like how the flower turned out. I make a little tutorial for you if you want to try this technique.
I used the Scallop Trim Corner Punch and punched the corners of two 2" Squares and two 2 1/2" squares.
After punching all 4 corners of all 4 squares I clipped in on the middle of each side of the small squares and made a "v" shaped notch and clipped in from the center of that towards the middle on the larger squares. Don't clip in too far so all 4 petals stay together. If you do clip too far and a petal falls off it would be simple to attach it without it showing since they are layered and a large button or brad center covers the center.
After clipping, fold from the edge of the punched out corner to the center of the clipped square. I turned down part of the scallops on the smaller squares but started just past the "v" shaped notch on the larger ones. I hope that makes sense!
I adhered the 2 large and 2 small ones together, alternating petals with glue dots. Regular adhesive probably won't be strong enough to hold the flowers together.
Put a brad or a button in the center and the flower is finished! I used one of the beautiful Vintage Brads in the Cajun Craze flower above.
You can add extra dimension to the flower with a little sponging around the petals.
Although these flowers have plenty of dimension! They are a great addition to any project.
I just couldn't stop until I tried one that is multi-colored. I reckon I need to go make some with DSP, those will be great! I'm thinking a Cherry Cobbler flower with a little Dazzling Details will be a nice glittery Christmas accent. I need to go play a little more with this technique! Let me know if you try it too, I'd love to see your creations.
