A close up of the flowers - the shape to the petals was from the bone folder. Oh and yes I am still engraving the Bone folders here in Australia you just need to pop me a message via my Facebook page HERE. Not on Facebook? I can be contaced through the 'Contact Me' button on my Stampin' Up! site.
My mum is one of my greatest cheer leaders and its not uncommon to be asked for a card for a friend - usually with a 'Oh I need to leave in 10 - can you do it?' So the bucket of loveabove went to our friend Joyce for her 80th birthday - I popped a 80 cake topper in there to add to the flowers. Below is the matching card with the sentiment from the 'Happy Birthday Gorgeous' stamp set.
Joyce and all the extended family mum was with loved it!
I punched 2 Whisper White flowers, a 1" circle that then has a small 1/16" hole punched in it, a Elegant Eggplant spot that's stamped (using the Daisy Delight Stamp set Daisy center) tone on tone then punched using the 1/2" circle. A piece of wire and a small pair of long nose pliers. I used Multi Purpose Glue and Glue dots.
Using the dauber I coloured the centers of the White flowers just a little.
The wire gets bent twice first to form a small hook then a second to lay that hook flat over the 1" circle.
So add the 3 layers of flower together - now you can add a little colour to the petal tips and shape your petals with your bone folder. You will note mine are not perfect or symmetrical.
I found turning the flower upside down on the work surface makes it easier to attach the 1" circle to the flower back.
