Heart Punch Flower card and tutorial

Guess what? No Awash with Flowers sample today. LoL. But I have a simple sample and a quick tutorial for you today. I made the flower on the card using the Heart punch and Heart to heart punch. Bellow the sample is the tutorial. The glower came out quite large, so I kept it as focal point of the card and tried to add as little embellishments as possible.
Scroll down for the list of supplies for the card, as well for the tutorial



supplies:
stamps: three little words
ink: melon mambo
paper: razzleberry lemonade, very vanilla, crushed curry and melon mambo
other: crushed curry polka dot ribbon, linen thread, button, corner rounder, heart punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, heart to heart punch, flower trio punch, jumbo brads

Tutorial:

Materials
:
Heart to heart punch
1 3/8" circle punch
Heart punch
designer series paper of your choice
liquid strong adhesive
button (optional)

1.
Punch
6 large hearts and 6 small hearts using the heart punches. I used the smallest heart from the Heart to Heart punch. As well punch ONE circle.
2. Fold all large hearts in half, inside the fold should be the design you would like to show. Then each side fold in half again, as shown on the pictures. Repeat the same procedure for all six hearts, as well for the small hearts.





3. Using SNAIL adhere the small hearts into the large hearts. See picture bellow.
4. Add glue in the middle of the circle and adhere two of the folded hearts, as shown on the picture. Then evenly position the rest of the hearts (petals). Let it dry. You may finish the flower with adding a button in the middle, or a big half back pearl, or anything you like.
