Hello friends! Last week I showed you how to press flowers in the microwave. Today I’ll show you how to use them in a card:
I used this dress form stamp from Lost Coast Designs. This is a great image because you can use it on a steam-punk card or a very ladylike card as I did here! The trick to using pressed flowers on your cards is making sure you have adhered them well so they don’t peel back and get damaged. Watch the video to see how:
OK, the video was a bit silly but you get the idea! And, wonder of wonders I found the A2 kreate-a-lope I lost yesterday, it got closed in a stamp binder. When I cleaned a stamp and put it back I found it! Go me! I win the day! I used it to make the envelope for my card then I used another 3″x3″ envie inside the card to hold a secret note! Best of all someone can put the note in the mini envie and the card can be reused, I love up-cycling!
You may notice that I dressed the card up a bit from what the video showed, I used the rulers background (also from Lost Coast Designs) to add in some background (Yes, I know, I should have done that before gluing in the flowers but, hey, nobodies perfect) and a sewed on a scrap of ribbon and glued on some die cut buttons.
That’s it for me today! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
