Scallop Circle Flowers

This is one of the many cards that we made during our stamping sessions in our hotel room at the annual Stampin Up Convention this past July.  The flowers are made with scallop circles punched from cardstock.  The scallop circles are then run through the crimper several times to break down the fibers so the two layers can be peeled apart.  After peeling each of them apart, we inked the edges, stacked them together, secured them with a brad in the center, and then ruffled them up.  This photo really doesn't do them justice because they are amazing in person.  The base cardstock layer is embossed with the Elegant Bouquet Sizzix embossing folder, the leaves are punched wings from the XL Two Step Bird punch.  The just for you sentiment is from the Just Believe stamp set (that we received as part of our convention registration fee - LOVE IT), and it's punched with the word window and layered on to the modern label.  We added a couple of the new basic rhinestone jewels on either side.
