The challenge this week was to create a card using handmade flowers. I'm still learning how to make them, but with a little more practice I think I'll get there. I'm so lucky to have Becky as a DT leader, she sent me over 100 flower punches! A flower punch is definitely next on my shopping list. :) Here's the card I created for this week's challenge:
The sentiment says 'For A Special Friend' sorry if it's hard to read.
Here's a close-up of the flowers. Each flower has four punches, so I used about 48 punches all together to make this card. They're painted with acrylic paint and once they dried I pinched them so that each layer was a little more "shriveled" than the next. They're super easy and so fun to make!
What I Used To Make The Card:
- White, yellow, green and purple cardstock paper
- 48 white cardstock flower punches
- Green, yellow and purple acrylic paint
- Cuttlebug with 'Floral Fantasy' embossing folder
- iRock with white gems
- 'For A Special Friend' sentiment in purple ink
- Circle cutter
- Liquid adhesive
