One of the first things I purchased from the Annual Catalog was the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper and the coordinating Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape. For some reason, these two items didn't get used at my events. That is, until this month. After the first snowfall in Minnesota (way too early), I needed to create a floral card.
This 34 second video shows you the beautiful Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.
I decided to make a double easel card and used three different pieces of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.
This card isn't that difficult to make. If I can do it (the lover of simple cards), you can too!
Card Base: 4 1/4" x 11" Very Vanilla Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2".
First Layer: 4" x 10 1/4" Rococo Rose Cardstock, scored at 5 1/4" and 7 3/4". This is the Easel part of the card.
Second Layers: One 3 3/4" x 5" and two 2 1/4" x 3 3/4" from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.
Now that your card is put together, it is time for the most fun ever! You get to make a flower.
The petals are sticky. Using the Embossing Buddy removes the stickiness. If you didn't use the Embossing Buddy, the petals would stick flat to the cardstock and they wouldn't look real.
The final steps are:
- Use the Leaf Punch on a scrap of Mossy Meadow Cardstock and punch out two leaves.
- Take a Bone Folder and curl the leaves.
- Attach the leaves with Glue Dots to the back of the flower.
- Add a Perennial Essence Flower Center.
- Attach the completed flower to the front of the card with Dimensionals.
