This card was made using the Creative Expressions stamp set "Steampunk Flowers" (designed by Sam Poole).
You will discover that I do love flowers and I thought it would be fun to use these.
The flowers were stamped onto red and black co-ordinating papers and heat embossed. The flowers were then cut out and layered up, as shown.
The leaves were cut using the Spellbinders Foliage die set. The smaller sprays were cut from card with double-sided self-adhesive paper attached, so that Luna Silver Vintage Mica Flakes could be added to them.
The centres of the flowers were embellished using clear Dazzlers.
Take care and happy crafting!
