Card #31 – Circle Punch Flower Card

Card 31 Supply LayoutI started by assembling all my supplies.

After Card #30, the Medallion Flower card, I wanted to do another flower card.  This time, I used the same circle punch, but after punching the circle, I used the same punch to cut out a petal shape.

And of course, the card wouldn’t be complete with out a butterfly – a copper one this time.

For this card I used teal cardstock (4 1/4″ X 11″) for my base, orange cardstock (4″ X 4 1/2″) for the frame, lighter teal cardstock (3 3/4″ X 3 3/4″) for the inside frame and patterned paper for the flower.

I started by punching 4 circles from the patterned paper.  Then I put each circle back into the punch and cut out 2 petals shapes from each circle.  I inked around each petal to give the piece some dimension.  I then punched out a circle from a piece of white cardstock to attach all the petals.

Glue petals in pairs across from each otherCard 31 3I glued the petals in pairs across from each other.  Once they were all glued down, I pierced the center of the flower and attached a pearl brad.

 

To finish the card I rounded the corners of the teal cardstock base, punched the orange cardstock with my scallop border punch and inked the edges of the orange and light teal cardstock.  I die cut a butterfly, inked it with Versamark and embossed it with copper embossing powder.  The pictures really don’t show how cool this butterfly looks.

Card 31 5I glued the light teal cardstock to the orange, attached the flower, the butterfly and cream embossed the sentiment.  The final touch was a couple of pearls attached to the center of the butterfly.

Here is the finished card.
