A card for an online friend who is going through a difficult time!! I love the softness of this card - all the elements work so nicely together.
I started by creating the "flower" using five 1.25" circle punchies of double sided paper from my stash. You can check out a tutorial here on Splitcoast Stampers. Each circle is folded into a triangle shape, positioned on a circle support, adjustments are made to the folds to fully cover the support and then each one is glued into place. Love the look!!
I glued mine to the center of a large white scalloped circle (NS), added a coordinating center circle punchie and attached it with a brown brad. I paper pierced all the scallops as well. I added a length of lace and ribbon to my kraft card front once I had embossed my greeting with white embossing powder. I adhered my flower element to overlap the lace and ribbon and finished off my card by adding a couple of paper pierced swirls!!
I will be uploading this card to Splitcoast Stampers for last week`s Technique Challenge - Circle Flower. I have decided to be more active on Splitcoast this year and participate in some of their challenges. If you are looking for a community of paper crafters to be part of, Splitcoast Stampers offers a wide variety of options. Check them out!!
There is nothing that can replace the feeling of receiving a handmade card!! The card is a constant physical reminder of the connection you have!!
