Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge #50

This is such a simple neat dimensional technique.  Scraplifted from

Art Nouveau Cartridge Tulip 2 design cut at 5 inches with shift, shift layer 1 and  layer 2 cut 3 times
Bazzill Cardstock in Walnut Cream, Ivy, and Classic YellowGreen
The Paper Company Natural Cartstock (Kraft)
My  Minds Eye So Sophie "Open your heart" Berry Stem two sided card stock
Ranger Distress ink in Tea Dye, Tattered Rose and Wild Honey
atyouSpica Black marker
Cuttlebug Script Texture embossing folder
PK238 Pocket Posies stamp set for the sentiment
October Afternoon Sidewalk twine
Archival Ink in Sepia
ATG gun (new, oh yea! see previous blog post)
Xyron Sticker Maker
Zig 2 way glue
Crop-a-dile Corner Chomper, stub/deco
hole punch

I cut the kraft card stock at 4.25 x 11 and folded for a top fold card of 4.25 x 5.5.  Then I cut the cream cardstock at 4 x 5.25, embossed it and adhered it.  I used my Xyron Sticker maker to adhere the two layers of green.  I then folded each of the top petals of the flower in half and layered them with a very thin line of zig glue in the center and let dry.  Then I could fold up the top two layers, creating the dimensional effect.  I edged the petals with distress ink, one with rose and one with honey.  I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of the kraft and then trimmed it, eyeballing the final size leaving a nice edge all the way around.  Then I punched the edges with the corner chomper and distressed them with the tea dye.  I punched two holes in the bottom and tied a bow with string.  I adhered it with the ATG.
