Flowery Get Well Easel Card

Love making these shaped easel cards, so here is another one.  Some more fun for another card swap I'm doing with my favorite Demonstrator friends!!!   The Labels die collection, Perfectly Penned word stamp, Embosslit Beautiful Wings, Blossom Party die, Itty Bitty Shapes punch, Snow Burst embossing folder are all Stampin' Up! products I used.  Card stock is Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Old Olive and So Saffron.  Stampin' Up! copyright and all that jazz!!!
 I've added some photos of the basic shaping of this flower.  Didn't even use my usual floral punch craft tools for this one. 
 Cut in between the petals and using your fingers just pinch each petal in half.
Cut out the same flower in green and cut apart so there are two petals together.  Pinch the petal in half on these two.
Cut the petals in half on this flower.  Layer all the flower pieces as shown on the card using two layers of the Vanilla Flower, one of the basic black flower and one of the center flower.  Easy to do!

In a couple of weeks, I'll be heading to CHA in LA to work with that Nice Lady Diana from Magnolia-licious and some of the great gals on the Design Team.  I am so excited to be able to participate and be with all of them.  An honor to be sure!!!  It is like a dream to be able to meet up with my internet friends.  So I hope anyone that has stopped by my blog, if you are coming to CHA be sure to stop by the Magnolia-licious Mini-World Booth and say HI!!!  It will be right next to the Scor-Pal booth so you can check out some of my favorite products Diana has there too.

As always, thanks for stopping by and always appreciate any comments!
Enjoy every day!
