Rose ATC Details Post-Carnation Tutorial

Hello crafty friends,
Here is my details post for the ATC card I created recently. I also wanted to include a mini tutorial on how I made the cute little carnation flowers.

Now on to how I made the flowers.
white flowers-500
I cut out the flowers in plain white cardstock. They were all the same size.

I stacked them and then punched them in the center so that I can use a brad in the center.

I then spritzed the petals with some Cherub Pink Glimmer mist. You want your petals to be moist so that they will be pliable.
This shot shows that. I used 8 petals per flower.

flower 3 layers-500
I threaded the brad through the first couple of petals and then gently scrunched them up.  Here is a shot showing the first couple of petals. I then continued adding each petal and “scrunched” them up. I also staggered the petals.

After adding the petals, I closed the brad and then gently opened up the layers and separated them so they would look realistic.

Here is a shot showing how small these little flowers were. They turned out really cute. You can make these  up ahead of time and have them on your stash.

embossing products-500
I used the Zing Gold Embossing Powder and the Pearly Sparkle Gelly Glitter Powder.
The rest of the products used:

DCWV Fresh Floral Stack for the patterned papers.
White cardstock
EK Success Photo Corner Punch
Gold Embossing Powder
Gelly Glitter-Pearly Sparkle
Embossing Pen
Warm Red Chalk Ink
Misc. Mini Brad
EK Success mini Flourish
Foam tape for added dimension
Mini Circle Punch

Hope this will inspire you to make some super cute flowers of your own!
