Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. I am married to Tony, my dear and wonderful hubby. We have been married for 34 years. I lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 3 Little Great Granddaughters and a Great Grandson. I have been card making for about 17years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.


Hi and welcome. 
I was so surprised most of you liked my flower I createdand quite a few of you wanted to know 
how I made it, so here goes.
I started by cutting out Di-namics Plentiful Petals

 I cut out 2 of the large size 3 medium size, and 
2 of the small size.
I distress inked the edges of the petals. 

 Then you use a large ball embossing tool to 
stretch put the fibers of the paper or light card.
This you do to all the sizes of the flower die.
This gives you curled up petals.

For the medium size and the larger size  snip
each of the petals with a scissors 3 times into 
each petal, this gives it a feathered look.

Then you close up your smallest flower into a
bud and glue so it stays in a bud. Do this a 2nd 
time to the smallest flower adding it to the first bud, this makes your bud a little larger.


 Next you add your 2 medium size flowers, and 
then your 2 large flowers.

Lastly add your last medium flower to the 
outside of the flower, and then you can see it
take shape.

Wallah one flower, now you can add stickles
if you like to the edge of the petals.
I think this colour one looks like a cabbage. lol.
