Handmade flowers
             Dear friends Thank you so much for the love showered on my  Paper Flower Romance and my little girl's Scroll Party Invitation Cards...blogger pals are the best!!
Sharing yet another card with handmade flowers.

         I used Kraft card as the base of this Floral card layered with pattern paper [you can see just a peek of brown stripes!] and Spellbinder die cuts[inked with peeled paint distress ink and water sprayed].Peeking through the frame you can just make out the brick embossed "kraft" card which serves as a lovely backdrop for my handmade flowers.

The leaves are stamped[Heartfelt creations], die cut [with Spellbinder Class leaf die] and sponged with distress ink[peeled paint].The Cheery Lynn butterfly is an all time favorite and after investing in a metal adapter plate I no longer have issues die cutting it!! The metal bird cage charm hangs on a wire stuck in a wooden bead.

Sharing the Paper Flower tutorial

Apply glue on the center of the flower as shown and use your hand or a slotted quilling tool to roll it into a bud.

You can add the 3rd die cut flower in the same way or as a variation emboss the 3rd  flower by running the embossing tool from the edge towards the center of each petal[this manoeuvre gives a deep cup shaped flower] and inverting it before applying glue and rolling it around the flower shape you had already made

I inked my flower petal tips with victorian velvet distress ink and sprayed with water to get a more natural blend of colors

          I really debated whether I should share this flower tutorial since its for a specific die which my readers may or maynot have.I finally decided the flower tutorial  may help serve as an inspiration to experiment with your dies/punches and discover more uses.Maybe like me when you discover myriad uses for a particular product [see Porcelain tutorial ] ,it helps  a teeny bit to justify spending on crafty goodies  [Wink**Wink **]!!
