The Easter Blessing Card with a vellum festive flower

Make the festive flower with the Festive Flower punch (remember when we used this at Christmas for poinsettia's

You’ll need: 8 large leaves and 4 small leaves; 2 moustache looking leaves, 2 of the “x’s” that are the flower in elegant eggplant and daffodil delight– and 1” circle (that won’t show).  Gently fold (crease) the flowers down the center (not a firm fold just a crease). 

Put glue in the middle of the circle and then arrange 4 large leaves.  You’ll see that the leaves have a rounded end and a pointy end. I like the pointy end outwards and the round end in the middle.   Put more glue in the middle and arrange the next 4 large leaves.

Put glue on the ends of these large leaves and add the 4 small leaves.  Then gently fold (see photo below) and glue the 2 moustache looking leaves.  At this point I put the flower to one side for 15 min and let it dry, as you’ve likely used a fair bit of glue! 
Then glue the 2 tiny flowers in the center. 

Consider making the center with elegant eggplant
Now adhere all the layers, add the flower

The very talented Brenda Jordan made this 2 versions - love them!!
