Scallop Folded Flower

Hi Stampers!

Beautiful morning in the North Georgia Mountains.  And...I am still continuing the celebration of my birthday week! :)  My sweet dear friend of many years is taking me to lunch and a movie today.  Since I'm running late this will be a quick share.

I created this card as my swap for the August PAWS meeting.  This flower was used in a project at convention this year.  It was in one of the extra classes that we were able to take in the evening.  It's made with the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle.
  • Punch five scallops.
  • Take 4 of the scallops and crumple them in your hand.
  • Open them out and fold each of them in half and in half again.
  • Use the extra scallop as the base and glue each quarter folded scallop to the base.
  • Make sure each folded scallop is facing in the same direction as you glue them around.
  • They should fit perfectly on the base.  If not, you can refold the the scallop so that it will fit.

Pin It
I actually created this card first for my swap and then realized that I didn't have enough of this patterned pattern paper to make all the cards.  That's what I love about this project...the color combos are endless.

The Adorning Accents Folders added a sweet extra touch to this card.  I used the small hearts across the middle.  And then added the the edge folder that coordinates with the Edgelit I used to cut the bottom of the whisper white layer.

This is is such a fun flower!  Here you can see the many layers.  The Boho Blossom Punch was used for the center with a Bitty Button and Basic Pearl.

If you decide to give this flower a try.  Let me know how it turns out or better yet email me a pic.

Gotta run!  Have a wonderful day.  Don't forget to leave a comment and share it with others.  It makes my day!
