Scalloped flower tutorial

Step by Step tutorial for making Scalloped flowers

Step #1

I have cut 3 different sizes scalloped circles from two different colour cardstock. I used nestabilities scalloped dies on cuttlebug machine to cut them out.

Step #2

I have inked the edges of the scalloped circles using Metallic Copper ink as shown below

Step #3

I then cut after every 2 scallop as shown in the picture below. Cut just about 2 cms inside.

Cut similarly on all the scalloped circle.

Step #4

Turn over the scalloped circle and use a blunt tool (I have used Basic Grey rub on tool here) and emboss in circular motion on every scallop.

Turn the scalloped circle over and now you get an embossed flower as shown in the picture below.

Repeat this on every scalloped circle.

Step #5

Layer them as shown in the picture below.

Now use a brad and secure them, You could use a brad, pearl, button whatever you like.

That’s it you have layered embossed flowers made out of scalloped circles. Now there is no way you don’t have a matching flower for your card or layout.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial.
Until next time
