In honor of Spring and all the birds that have decided to visit my front yard (to the delight of my cat) I made this card. The flower is created by punching out 3 scallop circles and folding them back and forth so that the paper becomes soft and begins to separate. Once it starts to separate, you peel apart the card stock so that one circle now becomes two. The two pieces that were separated look like suede. It's very pretty and looks soft. I used the same technique on the So Saffron circle in the middle. The flower is held together with a brad and adhered to the branch. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy the wonderful weather God has granted to us (at least here in CT).
