Becca Bit: Lace Petal Flower

Hello there

sorry if I seem to be missing in action.  I caught some kind of bug last Sunday and even though I keep thinking I’ve shaken it, alas it keeps resurfacing.   I normally burn the midnight oil when I’m creating but I’ve been hitting the sack in the evening.  No worries, I’ll be back up to speed in no time.  I have several cards almost finished but right now I do have something to share – another Becca Bit.  I’m finding that’s it easier to do these bits than to attempt to field the questions by email.   So this is a quick bit to show you how to make the Lace Petalled Flowers I featured recently on a card.  Enjoy!!

    Becca — your creations AMAZE me!! Totally STUNNING!!! I have the Spellbinders Lace and cannot wait to try your lace flowers. GORGEOUS!! Now, I will have to try the “handle” you made with the Lattice punch — I love that punch and can’t wait to try your little trick of double punching. Thanks so much for sharing your creativity!
