A simple hello!

Here's a simple card that has an adorable embellishment on it.  You don't need much else! I used paper from the Chantilly paper packet and one of our beautiful textiles from the Sarita assortment.

Here's a close-up of the flower.  It's so simple to make!

First, cut six circles from your chosen textile.  Don't worry, they don't have to be perfect.  If you use your microtip scissors you'll easily be able to trim the flower evenly once you're finished. My circles are about 2".
Next, fold each one in half and finger press the seam.
Then, place a mini glue dot along one edge.
Visually estimate folding this half circle into thirds and then fold the edge with the glue dot up .
Flip your petal over and place another glue dot on the folded edge.
Fold this edge to meet the other one.
You've made your first petal!  Just remember your folds should be opposite each other (like a Z).  Then take your petals and a circle you've cut from cardstock to assemble your flower.  My circle is slightly smaller than my fabric circles.
Start gluing your petals on, having all the points meet in the middle.  You could get technical and mark the center if you want.
Place your chosen button or embellishment in the center, glue it down with some liquid glass and you're done!
You can get fancy if you wish by cutting the circles with pinking scissors or other decorative edge as well.  Just make sure they're super sharp!  For this sample, I used some fabric from the Chantilly assortment.

Have fun!
Smiles, Caron
