Use more scallops for a fuller, more "carnation-like" flower.
Punch three to five scallops with a scallop punch or cut them out on the Cricut. Sponge around the edges with a color that coordinates with your project. I have sponge daubers for all of my CTMH ink colors.
Stack the scallops and pierce in the middle with a piercing tool.
Spritz each scallop (on both sides) with a little water or stamp cleaner. I prefer stamp cleaner. When dry, the flower smells really nice and is stiff, too.
Secure the dampened pieces with a brad. Then, beginning with the top scallop, scrunch the scallop (while wet) to crumple it up and around the brad. Repeat with each layer.
The result is eye-catching.
Here's an example of the flower on a finished card. To learn how to make a Flap Fold Card, click here.
