Circle Punch Flower Birthday Card

It was a folding frenzy to make this flower card using 9 x 2 inch circles(1 as a base, 8 for the flower). I had a ball making the petals and I think the pearl brad adds that touch of class. It took quite a while to line up the piercing to create that faux stitching look. It’s the very first card that I have ever taken money for and I sold it for $4 to my wonderful  neighbor, a monumental moment!!

Trish, you did a fantastic job with the folding. I've made those flowers myself, and they are not that easy to get the folds even, so I am in awe that you not only did super folds, but that you lined up the patterns on the paper. My hat is definitely off to you, gal!
