So I adapted the idea, and die cut a large scallop using my nesties....I then cut into it in the same fashion as shown in the tutorial....
This flower was made using nothing more than plain white card, but the Imaginisce bling really brings it to life...
...more layers, more dimension.
To make the rest of the card, I used a post card stamp, from Stampin' Up's "Winter post", which although is from a Christmas stamp set, I knew I would use it for creations all year round.
The stripey paper I created myself...just using a grey Tombow and a ruler!
However, my cutting pales into insignificance when compared to my lovely bloggy buddie Nela, who is a great source of inspiration to me. This lady cuts the most beautifully intricate creations, if you've never seen her work, please do hop over to her blog to have a look and see what I mean.
I have since been making flowers by the dozen, but this time in all different colours...I've been stamping on to them, and inking them up in all different ways, so it definitely won't be the last you see of them on my blog!
