Simple beauty

I love creating simple cards that still look elegant. Using the Sweet and Sour Designer Series Paper made creating this card so easy. The paper gives an eloquent background, while keeping the focus of the card--the 5 petal flower. The rhinestone jewel accents take a simple card up a notch to a stunning card.

While at convention, one of the main stage presenters showed us how to make these easy flowers. Simply punch the 5 petal flower twice out of the card stock of your choice. Spray the punches flowers with water, then wad it up into a ball. Open each flower up and pinch the petals of the flowers to get the shape that you wish. Set aside to dry. Once they are dry, simply layer the two flowers and connect them with a brad. So easy!
