Today I am sharing with you how to create this little card.

I used a 2" scalloped punch to punch 6 circles from white tissue paper. I pressed the tissue paper in the ink pad, randomly, to get some color. I stacked the tissue paper on top of each other with one cardstock scalloped circle on the bottom. I added a brad to the center.

Start scrunching the paper, starting with the top layer. Keep doing that until all the papers are "scrunched". Use heat tool to dry/set the flower.
If you want more details I have a similar tissue flower tutorial.

I adhered the flower on a chipboard star with Zots Adhesive Dots. The bottom white strip of cardstock is stamped with star stamps from Stars4you stamp set by Stephanie Bernard using the same Clearsnap ColorBox Pigment Stamp Pad: Made in USA. 
I used a 2" Sizzix circle die to stamp the round sentiment. I cut it in half and tucked it under the stamped cardstock and twine.
All the paper edges are inked with Clearsnap ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink: Toffee.


Thanks so much for visiting!
