Remember a couple of weeks ago I posted a card made with the stamp set "Build a Blossom" (#121994). At that time I didn't own the Blossom Petals punch that coordinates with this stamp set. Well I can scratch that one off my "wish list"-- I finally got the punch. I made the flower for this card with the punch and the embossing folder (EF) Vintage Wallpaper.
|Framed Tulips (#121809)|
|Finial Press (#115963)|
I embossed two quarter sheets of Eggplant Envy CS to cut the petals of the flower.
With a brayer I distressed the CS with Eggplant Envy ink. This gives the design a very nice finish.
|Blossom Petals punch (#121808)|
Glue down four of the petals as shows above. With a stylus or a pencil curl the edges of the other four petals before gluing them down with a glue dot.
|You're a Gem stamp set (#122270)|
Placed mounting tape on the back of the embossed CS to add dimension and mounted it to a full CS base (same color).
Of course, I had to add my butterflies or it wouldn't be complete. Used the Beautiful Wings embosslit (#118138) and the Little Leave sizzlits (#114511).
Which one do you like best? I think any color would look great. I'm going to try yellow and white CS for the next couple of Blossom Petals I make.
I learned how to make these flowers watching the below video:
