Today's post is for the challenge at Pals Paper Arts "Flowers" challenge 89, and here is the inspiration photo.
Well now on to my card..... which is using several new items available this spring.
I started with crumb cake CS for the base, then layered with a piece of soft suade CS. The next layer is the new yummy "Paisley Petals" DSP. Love this stuff and it does all the work!
I made a large flower by using my new Blossoms Punch for the cherry cobbler petals and a 1" circle punch in concord crush for the flower center.
I ran the pieces through the BS with a polka dot embossing folder. I glued the petal ends to the 1" circle with tom bow then free hand cut a stem of old olive.
I glued the stem to the back and sandwiched them with another piece of concord cs. [I punch a larger 1 1/2" circle to sandwich the back of the flower pieces & stem for more stability]. I then used dimensionals to Pop Up the flower head.
I made the flower leaves by using a scrap of olive ribbon tied in a knot, then a glue dot to attach to my stem.
The sentiment is from the SAB set "So Happy for You" stamped in cherry cobbler on a very vanilla then punched with the Modern Label punch. A second modern label was punched in cherry chobbler; cut in half to anchor it; then popped up with a few dimensionals.
Here's a peek at the inside with touches of the front.
