Cards, Technique

A World of Thanks

This photo does not do this card justice as it is much prettier in real life.  I have not made these paper flowers in a while and while they take time to make, it is so worth it!  The only time I will purchase a wood mount stamp is for a background stamp.  I have tried the clear mount and I don’t feel that it stamps as well as the wood when the image is that large.  This is just my personal preference as I am sure we all have them when if comes to paper crafting.

Instructions for the Flowers:

To make the flowers on this card, you will need to run to your kitchen and grab a piece of wax paper.  Punch out various sizes with the Circle Punches and spritz with water and scrunch. After a few minutes, carefully unfold them and then place a large drop of Multipurpose Liquid Glue onto the wax paper.  Using your “pinchers” (thumb and index fingers) gently pull the outer edges to the center.  You will punch, twist, and turn until you get the look you like (you will do this for each of the layers).  Let it dry for a few minutes before you build your layered flowers and embellish to finish it off.
