How DID She Make Those Roses? A Tutorial Guide

I showed this card a while ago and everyone wanted to know how I made my roses... Here Goes:
1. I punched 5 flower shapes from some pretty heavy card stock that you can get from any demonstrator.

Next, stack them up so that the petals are staggered

Using a needle tool, pierce a hole in the flower stack and secure with a brad.
Then get that baby wet... you can mist it... OR...

Dunk it! Whichever method you choose, you will need to make sure that the petals are wet through all the layers, so even if you dunk, you may want to mist each layer. DO NOT OVER WET!

Layer by layer, crinkle and smoosh the petals and arrange how you would like them. Note that if you are using some dark colored cardstock... the color may bleed... so don't wear your wedding gown while doing this project.
I sprayed my roses with smooch spritz and here is the finished look. The color of the flower will return and lighten when it dries... I recommend overnight. Secure to card with large glue dot or whichever adhesive you have that works best for you! I have put these flowers on hair clips that i have made for my daughter and they are a hit! Enjoy and if you have any questions... Please ask,I am glad to help!
