Floral Punch Craft - Begonia

I started this card by cutting an aperture from the front of the card with the plain square Nestibilities die then cut 2 pieces of contrasting coloured card the same size and the base card front, the lighter shade of these 2 pieces I used the cuttlebug birds and swirls folder and embossed the card, with the other piece I used the scalloped edge square die to cut an aperture from the center and layered these and stuck them onto the inside front of the base card.
I used the Spiral Bouquet by PTI to stamp the image on the base card then I outlined this with a quickie glue pen and added glammer dust.
I then made the Floral Punch Craft begonia using the Begonia Theme Punch I also needed the leaves to have shine as from what I can remember the begonia leaf has a waxy appearance, this was trial and error as I needed a glaze that would be flexible, I settled for a product called decopatch and it seems to have worked well.
Finishing by tying a ivory ribbon around the top of the card.




I've added a close up of the Floral Punch Craft here. if you click on the image you will see a close up image.

It's hard to believe this is not a real flower Jak. Your flower cards are so gorgeous, I never tire of seeing them. I just need to add some more words to my vocabulary as I always seem to be repeating myself!
