Faux Pressed Flowers
by Anne Harada
Create a card with the look of vintage pressed flowers.
- Embossing folder, with atight grid/design
- Stamped image of branch, flowers, or tree (Stampin' Up! Thoughts and Prayers used here)
- Glue Stick
- Paper flowers
Stamp image onto cardstock.
Adhere additional cardstock or patterned paper layers.
Select the Paper flowers you want to add to your image and determine arrangement.
It is okay to layer them, however, it gets harder to roll through your machine with each added layer.
Add glue to the back of each flower.
Adhere flowers to stamped cardstock.
Liquid adhesives will also work, but use sparingly so the glue doesn’t soak through when the flowers get pressed.
Insert the panel into the embossing folder and run through a die cut machine to emboss.
Add embellishments and finish the card.
Trim your Prima flowers and add color to create more realistic botanical types.
