The flowers on this card were made using the Large 6 Petal Flower - Floral Punch Set by Nellie Snellen.
These punches come in a set where you get the PUNCH and, what looks like a punch but in fact is an embosser. You punch out the flower and then put the punched piece into the embosser and press down hard to give the shape some depth.
I've seen some pretty flowers made with this so I just had to have a go and did these flowers. I punched four shapes, embossed them and then.. gave each shape some cupping, starting with just a little working my way with each one giving the next shape that little more. I then used one of the Nellie Snellen Stamen punches to do the centre.
The pin on this card is the first one I ever made and is a little 'wonky' but I just didn't want to change it.
Box for floral card - I have made a video on how I make my boxes for my floral shabby chic cards. I don't have any measurements to give you, as I make the boxes to fit the cards...
