Heartfelt Daisy Valentine

This is a change up from the Valentine cards I’ve been doing lately. I’ve finished setting up things for my classes and just wanted to work on a little something different. The flowering elements were brought to life by spritzing the cardstock with water after punching and die cutting. I then wadded them up and carefully unfolded and waited till they dried. The paper stiffens back up after drying and holds the crinkled shape. I then began gluing the pieces together to form this little bouquet attached to the heart.
