Monochrome Demonstration Card

I am demo'ing this card today at a party. I wanted something quick and easy, and it also needed to show the versatility of the punches. Wanted to get the wheel in somewhere too!! I made one of these flowers a while back and think they look stunning and so easy to make.

The base card is a landscape A6 in Basic Black with a piece of black and white houndstooth paper from the Night and Day speciality paper pack (in the new Mini catalogue). I rolled the Watercolour Vine wheel in Basic Black ink onto Whisper White, layered this onto a strip of Basic Black and then tied a knot of white satin ribbon around before popping up on dimensionals. The sentiment was also stamped in Basic Black and punched out using the Word Window punch.

The flower is soooo easy to make. I punched six scallop circles from designer paper and one from Basic Black. The six designer paper circles were scrunched up twice, opened back out and then attached to the Basic Black scallop circle using a brad through the centres. I then scrunched up the scallop circles again covering the brad and to make it look like a flower. This was then attached to the card with Tombow.
