Crumpled Flower Card

If you know me you know that I love making flowers.  These are called crumpled flowers and they are so so easy to make.  You really can't mess them up.  I cut out a bunch of scalloped circles (can't remember which cartridge) is varying sizes.  I think the larger flowers have 5 layers, you can add as many as you want.  The scalloped circles were cut out of white paper, a lighter weight paper works better for these, then I sprayed them with Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.  Spray them till they are good and wet, then crumpled them up into a ball.  Then carefully uncrumple them they will tear if you aren't careful.   Then stack them starting with the large one and build up down to the smaller size.  You can put a dot of glue to hold each layer or you can put them together with a brad in the center.  If I don't use a brad I add a skittle to the center, you can add whatever you like or nothing.  As I put them together I crumple and arrange the paper the way I like it.  Then I spray them again lightly, when they dry the get nice and firm.

Sorry on to the rest of the card.  The pink frame is from Sentimentals, and the white paper is very pretty pearlized paper and is embossed with a Quikutz folder.  Inside the frame is a background stamp.  The frame is pop dotted for dimension.  The card is 5 1/2  x 5 1/2 square.  Lately I like making square cards.

Your flowers are so very nice - when I try them they sure don't look like yours. I keep trying but you have the best.

Looking forward to following you on the blog and seeing more of your great cards
