Let's Make Some Flowers

Today I felt like making flowers, so here they are.  Easy peasy to make.

Here's a photo tutorial to show you how I did them.

Step 1)  Punch out 2 large circles, 1 medium & 1 small.
Step 2)  Ink the edges of all circles.
Step 3)  Cut the 2 large circles and 1 med. circle as shown.
     
Step 4)  On a rubber mat or old mousepad emboss each layer with an embossing stylus, or you can use the end of a pencil or pen, whatever you have.  First turn to wrong side and emboss each petal, then turn over and emboss the centre. You'll see that some of the petals lift up.
Step 5)  attach each circle using pop dots of some kind. 
 Step 6)  Add a button to the centre, or some kind of bling.

Now for the leaves
You can use a punch or do the following.....

Take a strip of paper about 3/4" wide, score & fold down the centre. 
Now, keep folded and with your scissors, cut out a half leaf shape.
  Now ink around the edges
Glue to bottom of flower using a glue dot or any kind of glue you like to use.

You can add as many layers as you like, or do a different size flower....just have fun!

Bye for now, thanks for visiting today,

left a comment here this morning and by mistake I deleted it. She said "I'm always proud of the cards I put up on my blog until I come here. I'm definitely out of my league!! " Sorry about that & thanks for the comment. By the way, I looked at some of your cards and they are great!
