Christmas Roses



I had a lovely day teaching a floral punch class yesterday at my local craft shop. It's so nice tucked in the class room there, overlooking the fields and away from the world. Easy to ignore the rain when you're engrossed in making flowers! Thank you to all the ladies for being such a lovely group to teach.

This is the card we made in the afternoon. The large white flowers - the Christmas roses - are made using a birch leaf punch for the petals, stuck onto a five petal flower shape to give the spacing and finished with a stamen punch for the centre. Holly leaves and a maple leaf punch for the ivy had a little brown sponging round the edge for a bit more dimension. The centres of the small white and red flowers all have liquid pearls.

We had a little extra time, so made a tag to match the card.
