Today I share with you a cute idea using the large heart punch, yes that’s right, the petals are made from hearts!
To make this card I punched a 2 1/2″ circle out of scrap card to use as the base to stick the petals on to. Fold this circle in half and then half again then lay it flat.
I punched 6 Hearts out of Primrose Petals cardstock and 6 hearts out of Raspberry Ripple cardstock.
Each heart is folded in half.
Glue each petal onto the centre of the circle so the tip of the heart is in the centre and the next petal, slightly overlays the previous one. When you get to the last petal, lift up the first petal slightly so the last one fits underneath it.
Layer the card base with some coordinating cardstock and then another layer of white.
I cut by hand the stem from Gumball Green cardstock and punched the 2 leaves from the Bird Builder punch and added them with glue dots.
Glue the flower to the top of the stem. I also added 2 small flowers (from the new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Set) to the centre and added a rhinestone basic jewel.
You can see here I embossed the hearts of this flower with the Polka Dots TIEF after I punched them out. It just gives it a bit more of a WOW!
I haven’t added a sentiment yet, but I will once I know who I am going to give the card to, whether its a birthday, thinking of you, or thank you!
I loved this Flower so much I made this pretty Shadowbox Frame for a friends baby and a special Stair Step card in coordinating colours!
