Mini Flower Card

This is another card from a recent card class. I did my flower a bit differently than the sample (it was ‘fringed’ layered petals). I really like the distressed and crumpled look, and the flowers are SO easy to create. Punch out various sized circles from scraps, ball up in your fist (great for any aggressions), unfold and further distress by peeling up the edges of the layers. I added SU chalks to each layer, but you can’t really see the subtle shading it gives in the photos.

I was inspired by the round nest and colors in the photo.
Day 12 ~ Circle Frenzy (Include 20 or more circles from at least 2 different sources on your card)
There are lots of circles in the designer paper I used for the backround (the center of each mini flower) and the flower is made of a stack of 4 circles.
