I think this first card is my favourite of the three I made. :)
Since CTMH has only ONE punch so far (but hey it's a start right?... actually when I think about it, they have TWO punches... there's also a corner rounder), I wanted to incorporate the new punch into this card. I punched out four 1 1/4" circles and glued them onto the back of the flap, then trimmed the excess off with my scissors.
I used our corner rounder to create the scallops for this one.
Card 3 took the longest time to create because I paper pieced the apron, and then I stamped, embossed and sprayed colour onto a paper flower and then had to dry it with my craft heater. I followed Jennifer Bennet's tutorial on how to create the polka-dotted paper flower. And you can find Jennifer's tutorial HERE.
To create this style of card, you take a 4 1/4 x 10 1/4" piece of cardstock for your base and score it at 5 1/2" and 8 1/4". Give it a try for yourself!
Happy creating! :)
