Easy Elegance

Here's an easy card that looks like "something more" thanks to the Cuttlebug and a simple crumpled paper flower. There were no "tricks" involved with making this card with the exception that I cut a giant "glue dot" from a CTMH Adhesive Sheet with a 1-inch circle punch to attach my flower.

Materials and Tools: White Daisy cardstock; Black ink pad; Papertrey Ink Mixed Messages stamp set; Cuttlebug w/Textile embossing folder; Cricut w/Walk in My Garden cartridge; Gold cord; Decorative button; Glue Dots; 1-inch circle punch; Adhesive Sheets.

By the way, this card was inspired by a card I saw somewhere, but I can't, for the life of me, find it to give credit. Unless I imagined it, the card I saw featured a rose that was made with circles cut with a paper punch. If anyone who sees this knows how that's done, I'll like to know, too. It was very pretty!

Oh my gosh! This is SO very pretty! I just LOVE it! I've not attempted those crumpled flowers yet. Maybe, if I can sneak out to my craft room, I can finally try it out.

I LOVE that button...where or where did that come from? It's so beautiful and sets the card off perfectly.
