First off I cut a 3" x 3 1/2" piece of white cardstock for the base of the panel. I used my glue stick and carefully laid down the tissue paper - making sure there were no wrinkles. Then I turned my attention to the flower. I cut four squares of tissue and one piece of cardstock and slide them all into the scallop punch with the cardstock closest to the outside of the punch (so the cardstock is the last thing the punch punches). I repeated the process with a smaller scallop punch. I crinkled all the tissue paper up, laid them back out, inked the edges, stacked them and put a red heart brad through the middle. Then I fluffed them up again.
I used MFT's sentiment and wrapped it around the panel a few times. Then I printed their names on cardstock and cut the black cardstock to look like a banner. The middle is popped up. I touched up the black hearts with my glitter pen too. I'm happy with the outcome of the card (Hopefully Gisela will be too!) Here's a closer shot of the flower:
Thanks for stopping by!!
PS: Cindy didn't get the boot - she's just a bit busy at the moment and had to pack up her craft room - so we'll post her projects again when she gets settled :)
