PTI Delightful Doily Flower

I "spruced" up a card I created in February by adding a burgandy flower made using the small die from the PTI Delightful Doilies die set. I die cut 4 of the small doilies, run each diecut through my crimper to breakdown the cardstock fibers. I then pulled each diecut apart making the 4 shapes into 8 shapes. This gives the cardstock a soft texture. The 8 shapes were layered, used paper piercer to poke a hole in center of the layers and inserted a small brad. The layers were then scrunched up around the brad and then pulled out to create the flower shape; an adhesive backed pearl was added to center of flower.

The flower was created to submit to the PTI Make It Monday project challenge to create a flower using a non floral die.

Fun In The Sun

I fell in love with this stamp (and purchased it!) when I saw it at the 100proofpress booth when I attended the stamp show last month. I created this card for Sam's At The Beach swap. The buttons are from my stash and the "sun" was punched from the SU 3 way blossom punch.
