Card #31 – Circle Punch Flower Card
I 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.
I 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.
I 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.
