Diamond Daisy

I *heart* my punches! Love 'em, love 'em, love 'em! This card was done for the January 14th Diamond Fold card challenge at SCS. I'd never made a diamond fold card before. I tried it first without scoring, and didn't even finish folding it before I decided I needed to take the time to measure and score. SU cardstock is pretty hefty, so it's tough to get the folds crisp and even otherwise. Here's a pic of the same card held flat (Ignore the thumb at the bottom--It's not part of the card!):
Isn't that a cool little daisy? I'm not sure what it is with me and punch flowers lately, but here's how I made this one: First I punched a Scallop Circle from Cameo Coral, found the center point and poked a hole. Then I used my paper snips to cut cone shapes out, snipping in about 1/2". Here's a quick pic:

After inking the petals with Ruby Red and a sponge dauber, I put just a tiny smidge of glue on the outside round part of each petal and dipped in Dazzling Diamonds (glitter). I used the Boho Blossoms punch to punch the 12-pointed flower from Summer Sun, then daubered Pumpkin Pie into the middle and added glitter to the petals. Used the Trio Flower punch and Rose Red cardstock for the smallest flower, dipped it all in DD. I used the Round Tab punch and Green Galore to get the leaf. The stem is just a strip of GG. Stitching details added with O.Olive marker.

INGREDIENTS (all SU!)
Paper: S.Sun, C.Celery, G.Galore, C.Coral, W.White, Rose Red, scrap of Urban Garden DSP
Ink: Ruby Red, P.Pie, B.Breeze (sponged in center of white piece)
