Saffron Cone Flowers


Ingredients:

Card/Paper: So Saffron, Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip, Confetti White
Ink: So Saffron, Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Sanded & Canvas Background Stamps
Other: Twill Tape, Hodgepodge Hardware

Method:

Each flower was made by punching one scalloped circle from So Saffron card, then snipping between each scallop towards the centre - stopping about 1/3" away. Then applied a little So Saffron ink to the edges of the petals on both sides of the shape using a piece of cut and dry pad. Folded the scallop in half, and in the process slightly twisted it so that the scallops from behind show between those in front. Then punched using a 3/4" circle punch from the edge of a piece of Chocolate Chip card so that it makes just over half a circle. Stippled these pieces with Chocolate Chip ink and a sponge dauber. Cut curved strips of Mellow Moss for stems and glued between the two layers of petals.

The Confetti White card behind the flowers was stamped with the Sanded background stamp in So Saffron ink. (Shows up better if you click to enlarge.) Pricked around the edge and slightly distressed with my scissor blade. Matted onto Mellow Moss card which has had the corners punched using a 1/2" circle punch. Threaded twill tape through a piece from the Hodgepodge Pewter Hardware Kit, and frayed the ends before sticking to the card.

The card base is Chocolate Chip stamped with the Canvas background stamp in Chocolate Chip ink. Card is 15cm by 10.5cm (A6) - roughly 6" by 4".
