I needed to make a card to send a gift card to my 18yo niece. I thought I'd give the Technique Lover's Challenge Twisted Card a try. My niece loves vintage stuff and I'd just seen these pretty flowers today https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...=1&theater so I decided to use pages from an old dictionary for my flower. I used this tutorial from Valita's Designs for the flower http://valitasfreshfolds.blogspot.co...unch-rose.html. I sponged with Soft Suede and spritzed with home made shimmer spray. I chose to close the front fold and layer over it. I used the Weathered bg stamp and was able to line up both halves by lining up the edge of the stamp with the fold on both pieces. I glued some lace trim along the edge and threw a couple of black flourishes behind my flower.

Love the crackle and the newsprint flower.
