One In A Million

I was playing around tonight with my newest petite scalloped Nestabilities and came up with a flower using the smallest oval as the petals.  After playing around with it for a while and adding layers, I finished off the flower and then didn’t quite know what I wanted to do with it.  It’s rather large, but I decided to put it on a card.

It has quite a bit of height, but depending on what I use it for, it can be flattened somewhat.  I took several pictures to show how easy it was to put together.

Cut and emboss smallest oval.  With the die still in place, stamp with background stamp.   Repeat for all 5 petals.

Score each petal 1/2″ from left side and fold.

Sponge or smudge the edge of each petal with Distress Ink.

Use a dowel or a pair of scissors to curl each petal.  Use glue dots to attach each petal to a 1¼” or 1½” base circle with the folded hinge in the center.

Cut five more petals out of vellum.  Score 1/2″ from left edge.  Sponge lightly with distress ink.  Curl each petal then attach to bottom of circle base with glue dots.

    What a great card. I noticed your wooden inker with the foam attached. Can you share where you got that? Looks neat. I am using Tim’s foam pads, they are a little expensive.ReplyCancel

    Becca, I’m almost afraid to share my flower with you. It pales in comparison to yours!. In reviewing your flower again, I see why your’s isnt nearly as ‘big’ as mine. I’ll try it again and again until I get it right! I’ve also just checked out your ‘card of the week’. Yikes, I’m going to need a job just to keep up with your magnificent work! Girl, you are so blessed! Thanks so much for sharing your work and your tutorials!

    Cant wait to see your next creation, Becca! Thanks so muchReplyCancel
