Saturday Simple-Punch Art Flower!

Hello Stampers! I  have a nice springy card for you today using punches! I also decided to add a tiny punch art ladybug in the center of my flower. How cute is that?

For my flower, I cut (14) using the Large Oval Punch and Whisper White Cardstock. I then used my Big Shot Machine and embossed all the petals with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Folder.

Glue the bottom layer of petals (7) the the Basic Black card base. Before gluing the 2nd layer of petals, I used a pencil and curled the sides of my petals around the pencil to give them a little curl. Glue in place using Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the center of the flower I used the 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch and cut (4) using Whisper White Cardstock. Pierce a small hole in the center of each scallop and then scrunch them all up into a spit-ball size and then unroll the cardstock to open them back up. Stack them on top of each other and add a Brad to the center to secure. Glue in place in the center of your flower using a Stampin' Dimensional. Fluff up the layers to your liking:

For the ladybug I first used a Black Permanent Marker and colored 5 small Pearl Jewels. I then cut Real Red Cardstock using the 1/2" Circle Punch for the body and the circle from the Punch Pack for the head. I assembled the lady bug as shown above and then add Crystal Effects to the whole thing and let dry. Glue in place using a Stampin' Dimensional. Hope you like it!
