Sweet Pea Scallop Flower

Sweet Pea Stitched Felt

 

I am having so much fun creating with my new products from the Occasions Mini catalogue. And this card uses two or my favourites – the Sweet Pea Stitched Felt and the Sending Love Specialty Paper. Gorgeous!

I was shown how to make this great punched and crimped flower by Jan McClurg at the Phoenix Regionals on Saturday. Was it only a few days ago that I was in warm and sunny Phoenix? One of the great perks of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is the wonderful training we receive and the great places I can visit.

This card has no stamping – can you believe it? I love the flower created by using the new Scallop Trim Border punch. Want one of your own? It is free with a $65 order. And make sure your order includes the Sweet Pea Stitched Felt package – 52 pieces for $11.95 or only 23 cents a piece. Love it!

I created the base of the card by layering Old Olive cardstock onto a card of Whisper White. The next layer of Pretty in Pink cardstock was embossed wit the Big Shot and the new Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impression Folder, a Stampin’ Up! exclusive.  At the bottom I attached a piece of designer series paper from the Sending Love Specialty pack. Can you see the glitter? This paper is awesome! The last piece of the card was created by punching a length of Whisper white cardstock with the Scallop Trim Border punch and gluing a length of the new Old Olive satin ribbon on top.

Want to know how to make the flower? 

 

Sweet Pea

Cut a piece of cardstock 1” x 12”. Punch the length of the cardstock with the Scallop Trim Border punch. Run the cardstock through the crimper several times (I did it at least 5 times) until it bends easily.  Punch a 1-3/8” circle of cardstock and cover with adhesive. Wrap the eyelet border piece around the outside of the circle pinching to gather the flower.

Once the first row is completed, start the second row of the flower.

Tuck the end of the flower length under and adhere to finish. Embellish as desired.

    This looks so great! Thanks for sharing.

    What kind of adhesive do you recommend for the crimped eyelet?

    What about for the felt pieces alone?

    Thanks for sharing

    Hi Teresa –

    I have made the flowers two ways and both seem to work well. The first time, I covered the punched circle with Sticky Strip and pressed the strip of paper down well into the adhesive.

    The second time, I covered the punched circle with Snail adhesive and completed the first rotation. Then I added more Snail to the bottom of the remaining paper strip and continued the flower to the end.

    For the stitched felt, I have been using the mini glue dots. Don’t you love these little Sweet Pea pieces?
