Fancy Flowers!

As you may remember, I am working on making my cards more lush.  I thought 3-d flowers was a way to achieve that, and posted on SplitCoast for ideas on flowers to make, as opposed to purchase, as I am usually broke.  I got some great tips and links, and these cards are the result.
Sadly, I set out today to make cards I could SEND out for two upcoming birthdays.  Any of these cards would need to be mailed in boxes.  I wonder if the Postal Worker would believe me if I posted a box to England and filled out the customs form with "a card"?  HA!

Here is the first card.  I used accordian folds to make these cute flowers.  I had a bit of trouble, for some reason I didn't find scoring every 1/4 inch very even on my Scor-Pal.  Perhaps I should not have done every half inch then flipped it over for the in-between scors?  I will have to check the scor-pal site for tips.  Still they came out pretty cute I thought.

This card has more dimentional flowers.  They are ten-twelve layers thick!  The double sided paper works much better than single sided/white back paper.

Here is another made with that type of flower.

Here is a close-up of the flower:

Have a great week!
