This was such a fun card to create. I had seen some paper flowers made from other newsprint paper and knew I had to try it. I sponged Cherry Cobbler ink onto the Die Cuts from the Flower Folds Die, putting more color around the edges. I roughed up the petals a bit and made the center from the 1-3/8" and 1-3/4" circle punches.
I also stamped off the filigree circle with Cherry Cobbler ink before stamping onto the Newsprint DSP panel on the right. I am finding that stamping the Cherry Cobbler ink at full strength is too dark for the look I am going for….although it was perfect for the Christmas card in my previous post.
I also sponged Cherry Cobbler ink onto the raised portions of the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder to make it stand out.
Before I added the flower to the front of the card, I spritzed the flower with Silver Foil Smooch Spritz to add some shimmer. Here is a close-up:
