Flowers are a bloom!

Finally the weather is warming up and flowers are blooming!  Not surprising but flower making is very important out there.  So I thought I would make a card using a neat technique I saw on Dawn’s video under Dostamping.com called Faux Suede flowers.  So fun, here’s the card.

mixed blossom 6

It’s such a pretty card.  The flower is actually the Modern Blossom punch run thru a crimper and then the paper is peeled apart to create that faux suede look.  I used Primrose Petals and Pretty in Pink and Old Olive for the leaves.  The bottom mat is Primrose Petals that was embossed with Lace Brocade and then I heat embossed with pewter embossing powder in different spots – not all over – I thought that kind of made the look different.

I think it’s a very pretty card and this flower technique is a very fun and interesting look.  I hope it encourages you to give it a try yourself.

Have a magical day!
