The wording on this one is from the Level 2 Hostess set, Apple Blossom. I inked it first in Baja Breeze and then used my suede marker to color certain words. I like it two-toned like that.
These flowers were fun to make. For each one, you punch 4 circles from the designer paper using the 1-3/8" circle punch. I used the new Elegant Soiree DSP for them. Fold each one in half and then fold that in half, so it is a quarter of a circle. Crease it well. Then unfold it, and fold it on the diagonal so that the two creases form an "X"--just do this one way, not both ways. Open it back up and tuck those little folds inside to make the quarter flower again. See that in the picture above. Glue all 4 quads onto another circle and you have the flower.
This shot taken from above the flower shows how the 4 quads fit together. I put a pearl from the Basic Pearl Jewels set in the center. Fluff up the flower to get the full effect, but laying flat it is a very "mail-able" card. And I also added 3 very small pearls at the bottom of the oval under the wording. I like how this card turned out!! Smiles, Laura
