Layered Flowers Card by Sue

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Sue has made another beautiful, elegant card to share, I hope you enjoy it.
Sue has used the Hero Arts "Essential Messages & Layered Flowers" Stamp sets.
Love it !

Products Used:
Cardstock: Kraft, Black
Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black
Stamps: Hero Arts Clear- Essential Messages & Layered Flowers 
Paper: My Mind's Eye Paper Pad - Fine and Dandy - True Blue
Accessories: Black Twill ribbon, Button, Sew Easy Black FlossDie-namics Open Scallop Border Die.

Cut black cardstock 105mm x 147mm (C6 size)
Cut Kraft cardstock 100mm x 142mm, the orange DS paper from the True Blue paper pack 100mm x 85mm.
Cut an additional strip of the orange DS paper, run through your die cutting machine with the open scallop die, trim to 100mm in length.
Layer the orange rectangle and the die cut strip on to the Kraft, cover the join with black twill, add an additional 2 loops of ribbon (cut 40mm lengths looped)
Layer onto the black cardstock and then onto a C6 card base.
Stamp two flowers onto the yellow DS paper and one onto the orange, cut out as pictured.  To add more height and interest use foam tape in between each flower layer. 
Stamp two leaves on the white based DS paper, trim.

To make the centre of the flower, cut lengths of the Black floss, (10-20mm) separate each thread.  Add a small amount of glue to the centre of the flower and randomly, trimming where necessary.  Attach the button in the middle.
Attach a small piece of foam tape near the tip of each leaf. Layer the flowers and the leaves in the center of the card, once secured bend up the sides of the leaves to add more interest.
Finish off with a sentiment & you are done!
