New Technique - Paper flowers

After messing up on my mom-in-laws card I made a new one and decided that I would use this technique for todays challenge.

Print out a flower from a favorite patterned paper, or in this case I used Little Big Trees flowers and printed them out. You can also use patterned paper and draw a flower shape.

Cut the flower out.

Next I used an embossing tool and made a small crease like indent in each of the petals.

Curl the ends of the petals, using your finger or bone folder.

I sprayed some gold irridescent on it for a small shimmer.

Add a brad in the center of the flower.
