This card will be perfect because once again I will have everything done except the sentiment, and then she can stamp whatever she would like... as long as it fits on her banner.
Take a look at that awesome flower, can you believe it is paper? My up-line Julie Wadlinger showed me this awesome technique. I don't even know if there is a name for it so if you know of one comment so we can know.
I used the Nacho Average Challenge #4l which was perfect for this flower, it just showcases it beautifully. Want to know how to make the flower?
This is how you do it.
- Punch your desired circular punch, I used the blossom punch for mine. I punched 4 but once again you can do as many as you like. Play around with it and see what you like best.
- Stack them together, punch a hole in center of them, then use a brad to attach them together. You can use a decorative brad. I used a boring one so I put a large rhinestone over it.
- Using a spray bottle on your mist setting spray a few times to moisten your top layer then scrunch and fold in, I usually fold around the brad using it as a guide. Continue doing each layer until all layers have been sprayed and scrunched.
- Then for the fun part, just un-scrunch and unfold off the brad, just play with it until you like the look of it.
- When you are all finished and like the look just set aside and let dry, it will be crunchy when dry. I hope you like it, give it a try, it was a lot of fun. Thanks Julie for sharing!!
