Sort of a Poppy!

I made this flower using the No Tools method, and changed the shape of the petal to a kind of fat heart shape, but without the dip in the top. I made the outer edges frilly by using some fancy edging scissors, and just nipping tiny bits out of the paper with the very tips of the deckle points. I only made one layer of petals, but put every other one on top to make it look like two layers of three.
The bud is made from one petal which has been rolled into a bud shape, and had the pointy end snipped off. For the green on the bud, I used an X-cut Funky Heart shape cut in two, with a little tiny three tipped tulip shape for the part where it joins the stem. The stems are just strips cut from the paper with scissors. I scored a line down the centre to give a little bit of dimension. The leaves are a Leone Em (Woodware) punch called Ash Branch.
Simply mounted on cream linen finish card, which has had the edges lightly distressed and chalked in green (doesn't show too well in the photo. Used a Woodware corner punch called Squared Corner Cutter. Matted onto the same green paper used for the leaves and stems. Cream linen card base. Woodware Tiny Phrases for the greeting.
