World Cardmaking Day :)

Today is World Cardmaking Day! For today I created an A2 size card using A Jillian Vance Design  products. The AJVD products I used is {die}velop Foto Frames & {die}alogue Bubbles Die Set , Over the Hill Stamp Set  , {die}namic Duo Die Set   and Emerald Cut {die}mond Nesting Die Set .

The paper is from My Minds Eye "Lost & Found" 6x6 paper pad.
The Image is from Cricut Cartridge "Forever Young" and cut out a 3inches.

Here I created this grungy flower using the flower petal inculded in the

Sentiment from Over the Hill Stamp Set  and stamped on the {die}namic Duo Die Set  .
I added dots of Liquid Perals "Butter Cup" from Ranger.

Below are instructions on how I created the Grungy Flower using
the flower petal inculded in the

First I cut out 15 petals

 Inked each petal with Distress Ink "festive berries"

and then inked them again with "walnut stain"

Now to make the flower grungy I just crumpled all the petals.
This will give each petal some dimension.

I used an 1/2 inch cricle punch and started to glue each petal
around the circle and attaching them in the center.

This is two layers of petals

here I added the last layer of petals behind the flower and in between
each peatal to give it a fuller look.

 all layers completed

Now I just added a pearl in the center.
Grungy flower complete :)
