Puffed Flowers

I was going through my saved cards  a while back and found a card with some cute flowers.  The only way I can describe them is "puffed"...and so I took out to find a way to make my flowers look puffed like them.  Simple card with simple layout...just fun!...
There is a subtle but fun "puff" to the flower petals...here's how I did it...

 Used  embossing tool (I think they are made for stencils...a friend used to stencil and when she gave me all her craft "stuff" there were a bunch of these in all different sized tips) with a large rounded tip and my Spellbinders embossing pad used with my Big Shot (my rubber pad is underneath the flower in these pics)...
 Gently but firmly rub the tool around the petal...it will begin to sink into the embossing pad...
 Turn it over and it will look like this...
Just thought it looked kind of cute compared to the flat version...
The punch is EK Success and the sentiment Hero Arts.  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
