Playing with Scraps

I had fun making this card. The flowers are from an old Christmas range of papers from Scrapbooking Australia. The cardstock is from SALT and the  cream Sizzix embossed cardstock has been inked with brown versa ink. I also used the same ink to do the sentiment. I used a border punch for the sentiment mat.
1. punch 4 circles for each flower.
2. Layer the circles and machine stitch the petals in place.
3. Adhere with Gel Medium to the cardstock and fluff up each layer to give a 3D appearance.
4. Cut thin strips for the stems and triangles for the leaves.
