Tutorial for Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop


I'm excited to be a part of the Memorial Day Bloghop for Operation Write Home.  Here is the tutorial for the card which will be posted tomorrow.

The card has a flower with a mat.  To make the flower and mat, I used the Bigz L Die 121812 Fun Flowers.  For the mat, I cut the flower into 5 petals and attached them to the back of the flower.  The flower in tomorrow's post looks much better from the front!


For the leaves, I used the 121808 Blossom Petals Builder Punch.  Each leaf takes three quick steps to make the center vein really stand out.

1.  Score the leaf down the middle. 
2.  Fold the leaf along the score mark.
3.  Turn the leaf over and fold in the opposite direction.  That extra fold really makes the vein pop!

For a free catalog, place a $50 order through my online store and I'll mail you a free catalog.

Or pay $5 for the shipping and I'll mail the catalog to you!  E-mail me at sharon@sharoncheng.com to send me your address.
