Time for the
Rosette Swap Party!!!
This weekend I put the finishing touches
on my package, going to a
I am a little (ok, very!) apprehensive
about the whole thing...
Will she like what I made?
Will she be able to tell that this is my first swap?
It has been a blast
looking at her blog, learning about her
and her family, and trying to put together
a package of goodies she will enjoy!
In the midst of all this excitement
I made this card for a friend.
(the actual color of the flower is much closer to the color of the printed paper)
I had watched a YouTube demo by
Close To My Heart's "Stamp Goddess"
on how to make round cards
and thought I'd give it a try.
I had also heard about making these "squished" flowers
so I made mine out of book print and
sprayed it with Glimmer Mist.
Of course I had to throw some pearls on there...
Can't get enough of 'em!
Per Deb's request, here are the super-easy instructions
for making, what I term "squished" flowers! :)
First, I punched several 2" scalloped circles
from old book pages.
Punched a hole in the center of all punches
(I used my Big Bite).
Then I sprayed them with Glimmer Mist (you can use plain water if you want to leave them natural).
Then, you SQUISH them!!!
Un-squish & hook together with a brad.
SQUISH again until you get the look you like.
That's it! Easy-Peasy!
Thanks for stopping by!
Please let me know you came for a visit....
It's always a joy to hear from you!!!
