Paper Carnation

Here is my version of the Scallop Circle punch flower. I used some old Apricot Appeal DP from my stash to make my flower. I punched out 8 scalloped circles, placed a small hole in the center of each, crushed each in my hands to break down the fibers in the paper and then straightened them back out and inserted a brad to hold them together. I then straightened the petals back out and shaped them into the flower image you see here. This was a very simple process and makes, I think, a beautiful 3D flower.

I completed the card with Apricot Appeal cardstock, Old Olive leaves punched with the Stampin' Up Little Leaves Sizzix and Whisper White cardstock embossed with a Cuddlebug folder. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Hope you enjoy my share for today. Thanks for stopping in.
