Hydrangea Bittybloom ~ Happiness

Yes another Bittybloom flower card, I've been having so much fun creating these circular Bittybloom cards that now I want to make a whole collection! I've had a few people ask how I made the flower cards that I've posted so far so I decided to show step by step directions on how I did them. I used my Nestabilities on all of the flower cards I've created.

Step one: Stamp and color your image, then cut and emboss the image using your Nesties circle die and add a mat.
Step two: To make the card base for this card I used the largest Nestibilities circle die I had (on the other flower cards I used the largest scallop circle die) and took the color card stock I wanted to use and cut it length wise just a little larger then the die.













Step three: After cutting your card stock to size you need to score it for the top fold of your card. I took and placed my card stock and die on my Scor-Pal and scored just under the top portion of the circle die (for this card it was 4"). So when the die is cut the front and back sections will still be attached (see photos below). Then I folded and trimmed down my card.
Step four: Next I cut the base of my card by running it through my Big Shot (notice how the circle die is over the edge of the card stock so it won't get cut).

Here is what my circle card base looked like after cutting. Once I had the base cut, for this card I used my 1 3/8" circle punch and added petals and then attached my matted image to the center.

If you have any questions please email me.
