A Fancy Flower With Cherry-O

I made this card with the Cherry-O paper pack from Close to my Heart. That awesome flower is fairly simple to make: Punch 8 circles from patterned paper and 1 from cardstock using CTMH's 1-1/4" circle punch. Fold the sides in on the patterned paper (see my example below). Stick a glue dot in the center of the cardstock circle and adhere the folded "petals" on the cardstock circle base to form a flower. (Note: You will need to play with the width of each "petal" to get them to line up perfectly. Don't expect a perfect flower your first time!) There's also a picture tutorial on page 13 of the Summer Idea Book.

Sorry the picture isn't better...took this one on my iphone.

The challenge at Heart 2 Heart this week is Fancy head on over there to see the design team's awesome creations...then join in on the fun!

Stamp sets: Dainty Thoughts (Good Luck), With Love (stem/leaves)
Other supplies: Cherry-O Level 2 Paper Pack, Chocolate ribbon, Chocolate ink, Sweet Leaf ink, 1-1/4" circle punch, Chocolate waxy flax, button from stash

Although I didn't use the Cherry paper from this pack, it's adorable. If you're into cherries, there are a lots of coordinating cherry items here.
