Ornate Flower and Fancy Flower Punch

The flower on this card was made using the new Fancy Flower punch from Stampin' Up! It was made using the same method as the one in the video in this post, except I only did three layers, and the flower has been left open in the centre. Before spraying the punched shape with water, I inked the edges with Melon Mambo. The pink centre is a shape from the Boho Blossoms punch. The leaves were made from the Fancy Flower punch. I cut each petal apart like pie wedges, then used my paper piercer and mat to score veins, before adding around the flower. The outer points of the leaves are the inner points of the pie wedges.

The flowers stamped at the bottom of the image panel have Dazzling Diamonds around the centres for a little added interest - doesn't show very well, but you can just about see it if you enlarge the image. I used the 2-way glue pen to apply the glitter.

Card/Paper: Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Greenhouse Gala

Ink: Old Olive, Melon Mambo

Stamps: Ornate Flower, Sincere Salutations

Other: Filigree Flower Brad, Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds

Card Size: 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
