Grateful Blossom

Even though this flower is very dimensional, it can be flattened out to mail. It will probably require extra postage and a padded envelope but as the saying goes..."when you care enough to send the very best". The flower was created using the 1 3/4" scallop punch (4) and the 2 3/8" scallop punch (1). The scallop circles are crumpled and distressed enough to be able to peel them apart and have 8 small and 2 large felted scallop circles . The small circles are each folded into quarters and adhered in the center of the large felted circles at the center points. I actually sewed them on using embroidery floss but you may be able to use sticky strip or tombow glue. The corduroy brad helps to cover the floss and also creates the flower center. The flower was attached using tombow glue.

Supplies Used: Paper: Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry DSP; Ink: Black, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive; Stamps: Sidekick Sayings; Other: Scallop Circle Punches, Little Leaves Sizzlet, Summer Sun Corduroy Brad, Tombow Adhesive, Rhinestone Brad, Embroidery Floss
