Fabric Flower - No Sewing :o)

Another card using the Candy Cane Christmas fabric.

To make the flower head ...

Cut a long strip of the fabric and fold it in half longways. Punch out a 1 1/4" Circle and cover it in Sticky Strip. Secure one end of the fabric on the reverse of the Circle with a little more sticky strip - then twist the fabric strip, securing it on the top of the Circle by pressing it into the glue. Continue twisting and sticking, working in a spiral towards the centre of the circle. Cut off any excess when you can fit no more fabric on to the circle.

I topped the fabric spiral with a Real Red punch out from the Boho Blossom Punch and a Rhinestone Brad.

The stem and leaves come from the Sweetheart stamp set and the flower is the Al La Carte - Flower For You stamp. The background layer has been embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder.

The colour combo used is Real Red, Basic Black, Wild Wasabi and Whisper White.
