Card #30 – Medallion Flower Card

Card 30 Supply LayoutI started by assembling all my supplies.

I love medallion flowers.  They look so complicated, but they’re really easy to make.  It’s important to have reversible paper because that just adds to the interest.

The size of your circle will determine the final size of the medallion flower so you can adjust it for any project your have in mind.

 

For this card I used burgundy cardstock (5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″) for my base, cream cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″) for the frame and reversible patterned paper for the flower.

Circles cut out of reversible paperFold one side of each circleFold each circle into a cone shape

 

 

 

 

Card 30 4

I started by punching 8 circles from the patterned paper.  I inked around the edges of each circle to add some dimension and interest.  Then the folding began.  With each circle I folded one edge about one third of the way to the middle.  After that I folded the opposite side of the circle to meet the edge to make a cone shape.  Repeat this step 7 times.  I used my adhesive to seal the cone shapes closed.

I stamped my sentiment on the lower portion of the cream cardstock and then attached each ‘petal’ of the flower to the upper portion of the card.  When the flower was formed I glued a button to the center.

I finished the card by wrapping sheer ribbon around the cream cardstock and securing it with a double knot just under the flower.  I then used my tape runner to adhere the card front to the burgundy base.

Here is the finished card.
