A Simple Wow – Crepe Flowers

Blushing Bride and Crepe Flowers

 

Re-introducing … Blushing Bride. After an absence, this colour has returned to the Subtles Collection as part of the colour refresh.

I partnered it here with Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Whisper White. I wanted to make the Crepe Filter Paper flowers the focal point of the card so I kept it simple. On top of the layer of Blushing Bride card stock, I added a bold greeting in "Thanks So Much" from the Oh, Hello stamp set cut out with a Label Collection framelit. A paper ribbon of Early Espresso card stock notched at the end completes the card except for the flowers.

The Crepe Filter Paper flowers have a large pearl center and lots of texture and height. Scroll down to see how the flowers were made.

Crepe Flowers Close Up

I used two different flower shapes from the Secret Garden framelit – the smallest flower and the daisy.

To finish the flowers, I adhered a large pearl on top of the brad.

 

 Crepe Flowers Step 1

I cut out 8 flowers at one time with the Secret Garden framelit and then separated the flowers.

Then I crumpled each flower individually. Next, I opened up each flower and layered them slightly offset.

 

Crepe Flowers Step 2

 

With the paper piercing tool and pierce mat, make a hole through all of the layers and insert a brad to hold the layers in place.

 

Crepe Flowers

The look of tissue paper with the strength of card stock. Fun to stamp, dye, ink, punch, or stitch. 12 total sheets: 4 rectangles (ea. 6" x 12") and 8 circles (ea. 6" diam.).
