Using blooms

By blooms I have included punched flowers, primas and large 'blooms'.  The larger flowers were from 'artificial' flowers that were from a florist wholesaler, look out for them in bargain shops and garden centres.  You can all sorts of embellishments in the centres, buttons, pearls, gems, glitter, dew drops, open roses 
 

Primas
A scrapbook layput by Sue with a Prima flower.

 

Lilac

Ladies that Lunch
Simple card with a big prima to give it a bold finish, and some crochet cotton.

Simple
Very simple with a brad for the centre of the flower.

Aperture
A hole has been cut with a square punch, and the centre is a 'dew drop'.

Just a few
Little primas added to this card with glitter (Little Stickles) centres.

Garden Flowers
A bunch of punched flowers with gems for centres.

Punched
A few punched flowers and faux stitching around the edges.

 

Big Bloom
Ribbon threaded and knotted through a button forms the centre of this bloom.  The backing is embossed with the Cuttlebug and inked with liquid chalks. 

Vintage Fashion
These printed Prima flowers are perfect complement for the vintage theme of this card.  The centres are completed with 3D paint.  This takes a little while to set - so not good for a quick card.
