Going Vintage

Another club card from earlier this week! Aren't those vintage flower adornments gorgeous??? I didn't think I'd like them, but they are so yummy in real life. 

To make this flower, we ran our cardstock through the Big Shot with the lacy flower on the Fun Flowers die. Then we ran each flower through the crimper many times (approx 15) until the fibers broke down. You’ll see the layers begin to separate. Carefully pull each flower apart into 2 layers. Line up your flowers as desired (I put a Vanilla layer in the center) and poke a hole in the center. Insert a brad.

Lightly spritz your flower with water, and crumple up each individual layer. Allow to dry for a minute or so, then flatten. Adhere a Rose Red Vintage Flower Adornment to the center brad with a dimensional.
