Floral Punch Craft - Hourglass Flowers

Lots of parts to each one of these flowers starting with 6 petals all to be water coloured and shaded, 1 base to attach the petals to after shaping them, 1 calyx cut and shaped and a stem which I have to say was a tricky little beggar.
The instructions for the flower can be found in Floral Punch Craft VI by Leone Em.
I used a white 15 x 15cm base card and stamped the leaves using Papertrey Ink Beautiful Blooms stamp set I used the oval Nestabilities to cut out the plaque to site the flowers onto and I embossed the top oval with the Swiss Dots folder, I made up the flower arrangement and tied it secure with a thin white ribbon then tied the Spring Moss satin ribbon around the base of the card.

These flowers are so sweet, Jak. I love the idea of putting the mat through the embossing folder - it really makes the centre of the oval stand out.

Love Joan :o)
