faux pressed flowers

Happy weekend!  Where does the time go?  This week flew by very quickly! 

I am just popping in with my last project from the shoebox event I attended recently.  This is my ATC swap (artist trading cards).  If you are not familiar with ATC’s, they are 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.  It is fun to work on the smaller size and see what everyone else creates too.  I used the Faux Pressed Flower technique to make mine.

I started by attaching a piece of paper lace doily to the bottom corner and then I stamped the leaves and added the paper flowers.  I tried an embossing folder with a tighter pattern but it was a bit too busy on this and it was harder to read the words.  I kept the first pieces, though…maybe I’ll try to make some cards with them. 

I’ll be sharing some more shoebox and swap projects in May…I’m already looking forward to the next one!

stamps- SU! Best Blossoms and Bloomin’ Beautiful; paper- kraft, purple, white; ink- SU! Olive, Distress Vintage Photo; accessories- Primas, paper doilies, Cuttlebug Textile folder, EK Success Victorian Photo Corner punch, liquid pearls.
