Neutral Colors with Scallop Flower

Each month I create a one of a kind card for my son's piano teacher.  This is her April card and I'm really happy with how it turned out.  Five strips of designer series paper each punched with a different border punch, a flower created with eight circle scallops, an antique brad and a little edge ink sponging makes this card very elegant.

Products used to create this card:
Stamp set:  Crosses of Hope
Card Stock: Soft Suede and Crumb Cake
Ink: Soft Suede                                 
Designer Series Paper: Elegant Soiree                                               
Accessories: Antique brads, Baja Breeze seam binding                        
Two step Bird punch and sponge.

To make the flower; punch 8 scallop circles.  Lightly mist 7 of them with water, then fold each one in half, then half again and half again.  When you have all 7 folded, adhere then to the flat 8th scallop.  Sponge with ink and add brad.  A version of this card will be made at the April stamp camp.
