Roll With It G.C.D Style!

Good morning fellow scrappers! Since this month is Father's Day, how about we create a flower with a little bit of a rough and tough look. Perfect for those manly pages of yours! Or if you'd like, you can even use them on a girlie layout. So many possibilities! Ok. let's get started!

First up, gather up all your supplies. Use your scalloped punch and punch out a scallop from the Homespun Chic Vintage Audrey paper.

Spray about 2 squirts of your lemon and lime mist on your punched scallop. Once the mist has dried, lightly ink the edges, crumpled up the scallop, and then smooth it out again.

Cut about a one inch strip from your Artsy Urban Big Butterfly paper, wrap it around a pencil to create a coil. Remove it from the pencil and then begin to coil the paper unto itself.

Now you should have a nice little flower center.

Take your newly made flower center and use a few glue dots to adhere it to the Homespun Chic Textile Gift Tag. Then adhere the textile gift tag to your scalloped circle. Easy peazy right? Now if you want, you can add a button or some gems in the center to add a bit more texture to your flower or you can leave it just the way it is. Here is how I used my manly flower on a layout.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, Paper: G.C.D. Studios, Flowers: G.C.D. Studios, Pearls: Kaisercraft, Lace: Prima Marketing, Alphas: BasicGrey, Brads: American Crafts, Pen: Martha Stewart Crafts.

And a close-up shot of some of the detailing.

Until later!
