Happy Birthday, Judy (Judy, don't peek!)

It's almost happy new year for everyone! So long, 2009....hello 2010!

Today's card is for my mother-in-law's birthday, just after the first of the year. For Christmas, she gave me some of the punches I requested to make paper flowers. This is my first attempt with them. I thought it fitting that since she gave them to me, she should be the first recipient of something I made from them.

The first one was hard, but once I understood the mechanics, the second one was easier, and I'm proud of the result. Hopefully she'll appreciate this! :-) Now, to figure out how to get it to her without it getting destroyed in the mail.

Supplies: Vintage Cream and Kraft cardstock from Papertrey Ink, Core'dinations cardstock for the flowers; Papertrey Ink Fancy Flourishes stamp; Cornish Heritage Farms Birthday Centers stamp; Adirondack Dye Ink in Lettuce; Martha Stewart border punch and butterfly punch; The Punch Bunch ovoid and sakura punches; Carl Craft sakura punch; Want2scrap.com pearls.

Beautiful flowers -- how did you make these? Are the large flowers made from a punch?

Heather in FL said...

Thanks! :) Actually, each petal is from a punch. After punching, I "molded" each petal so they were rounded with the Punch Bunch toolkit. The bottom layer is attached to a daisy punch out (petals on the edges of the daisy petals). Next layer is also on a daisy punch, but a little closer in, then the next layer is attached to that same daisy. Using Zip Dry helps the petals to stand up. Hope that makes sense!
