Crochet Flower

I crochet the flower pictured in this card using DMC embroidery floss.

Stampin' Up! Products
  • Card base:  Whisper White is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" when folder
  • First Layer:  Rose Red cardstock is cut at 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Second Layers: Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper (DSP), top half cut at 5" x 1 1/2", bottom half cut at 5" x 2"
  • Old Olive cardstock
  • Rose Red ink
  • Rose Red 1/4" grograin ribbon - 6 1/4"
  • Small Oval, Word Window and Modern Label punches
  • Movers and Shapers Modern Label die
  • Crimper
  • Dimensionals
Other Products
  • Embroidery floss
  • Button
  • Medium glue dots

  1. The DSP used for the top half of the second layer is glued first to the Rose Red cardstock
  2. The DSP used for the bottom half of the second layer is then added, covering a little DSP already affixed to the Rose Red cardstock
  3. Wrap grosgrain ribbon around the front of the layers and glue to the back  (covers the lines where the two different DSP meet.)
  4. The layers are then glued to the card base
  5. To create the leaves, cut out two small oval punches, fold them lengthwise in half.  Using your crimper angle the folded oval through the crimper
  6. Using medium glue dots, add the leaves to the back of your crochet flower
  7. Place medium glue dots behind flower and attach to card
  8. Stamp image onto DSP and punch out using the Word Window punch
  9. Punch a Modern Label out of Old Olive cardstock
  10. Using the Movers & Shapers Modern Label die, cut one out of Rose Red cardstock
  11. Place completed sentiment onto card using Dimensionals
