Well, I have been toying with doing a tutorial on my blog for a while, so I have finally taken the plunge and done it. Hope it is OK and fairly easy to follow.
Today I am going to show you how to make some flowers to decorate your card using the Scallop Circle Punch.
For each flower you will need a scallop circle punched from designer paper or card stock. I used Rose Red Designer Paper. A circle of card stock or DP to co-ordinate with the Scallop Circle you have just punched out using the ½” circle punch and a 5-Petal Flower punched out in a Green card stock for leaves. (I used Old Olive)
Take the Scallop Circle of Designer Paper and snip towards the centre of the shape. This is to create the petals of the flower. Do not go right into the centre as the petals will fall off!!
Next with a sponge ink the edges of the ½” circles with ink to highlight the edges. My circles are in Regal Rose card stock, so I used Rose Red Ink as a contrast.
With the 5-Petal Flower punch green card, snip into the middle of the shape making each snip meet to make leaf shapes.
Then sponge the edges with ink. I used Olive Green card stock and Olive Green Ink.
Assemble the flower by gluing a circle into the middle of each flower and lifting each petal to create a flower. Assemble a card and attach flowers using dimensionals, and arrange leaves around the flowers gluing into place
This card was for my lovely new down line, Alex, who is having an Open House day tomorrow. I would have dearly loved to be there to support her, but unfortunately I have something on and unable to go, so I sent this card to her to wish her loads of luck and to let her know I will be thinking of her.
Hope you enjoyed my very first tutorial, please do leave a comment and let me know what you think, it's great to see who stops bye during their blog reading journeys..
Bye for now
