Craft, Again

Today, I am sharing a card that uses the same kind of flower used on yesterday's card.  There were some questions about how I made it so I thought it would be fun to show it again.


Look at that paper.  It's from October Afternoon - isn't it divine?  I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE designer paper.  I buy it and hoard it.  I take it out and and touch it and look at it and actually hate to cut it.  I am in awe of its perfection.  I know I'm not the only one.  Fess up, those of who could easily join my DPHA (Designer Paper Hoarders Anonymous) group!  My name is Sue, I am a Designer Paper Hoarder and I don't want help!

Anyway, I digress - on to the flower.  I used the SU!'s scalloped circle punch to make five circles.  I scrunched and crumpled them up and used SU!'s distressing tool around the edges.  I stacked them up and then sewed the button onto the stack with jute twine.  I then "fiddled" with the paper to get the look that I wanted.  Dawn McVey does a picture tutorial that I drew from, and it was super easy.  I know that I will make many, many more - it seems to add the right touch to cards that I love.
