Fabric flower

You know these big old fabric flowers are so popular right now, in the hair or as accessories on clothing. I thought I could make one and have wanted to for a long time. Today, I did it! Wooo hooo.

I cut circles from three different colors of this polyester fabric. You don't have to be very precise in your cutting. I tried using my heat gun to melt the fabrics, but don't waste your time - it doesn't work. hee hee hee I lit a candle and used it as the heat source. I layered all the circles and stitched them together, adding a button to the center.

For the card, I used a chocolate chip base and then the black to mat the going gray card front. The flourish from SU! Baroque Motif was stamped using black craft ink and clear embossed. The sentiment is stamped with chocolate chip ink and clear embossed. The flower is removable to use as an accessory.

What do you think?
