God Bless You Card with Napkin Flower
For some reason Blogger deleted my post from yesterday, so I am going to try to post it again...
This a very simple card that I taught at a church function last night. I taught the ladies how to make a flower using a plain white napkin. We punched the napkin with CTMH’s scallop circle punch 3 times. (Make sure to sandwich your napkin with a piece of copy paper on each side before punching or your punch will jam! Trust me on this one.) Then we poked a hole in the middle of the stack of punched napkins using a Piercing tool. We inserted a white brad in the middle and then scrunched up each layer towards the middle to make it look like a white carnation. If you have visited my blog in the past, you have probably seen my crimped leaves before. We just folded a piece of cardstock in half and ran it through a crimper at an angle. Then we cut a half leaf shape out and when we opened it up, we had a perfect leaf shape. Some of the ladies used a sanding block on the leaves to distress them a bit.
