Spiral flower from EK Success

A couple more cards from the EK success POD on Ideal World, thought this one would be great for an invitation.
I stamped one of the larger images from the set out and embossed in silver. Punched out the centre design, and then cut around and also in half. After embossing in silver three of the spiral flowers, I cut them down to build the layers of the flower.
The background was embossed using an A4 folder from Crafters Companion.
To mount up the embossed background was added to the card base using 3D foam. The triangular piece then placed in the corner and the spiral flower on top.

This was really quick to do, just embossed the spiral flower several times in white embossing powder. Then apply Distress ink over the top, which means it could have been any colour or multicoloured.
Repeat on another piece of card ,one image this time, then use the punch in the set to cut out. To lift the flower away from the background, punch another flower just out of white card and mount below the coloured one.
Adding a few pearls to the centre of the flowers and a greeting, which was stamped on a label die shape from Spellbinders.
