Faux Suede

Hi All,

Back to all things flowers....again!!!! I love finding cards and putting a slight twist on them. This is the card that inspired me today. I love the way the flower just popped up off the card. I wanted to try the Faux Suede technique with it, to see how it would work. These are the 2 cards I came up with....



Sadly you cannot really see the script or vintage travel tag stamp I used on the backgrounds of both these cards. Hopefully you can see a little here....


I also stamped the suede side of the flowers in the same stamp in the same CS colour to give a bit of texture and interest. I think you can see it on the blue one slightly better.


The leaves are punched from the Blossom Petals Builder Punch and folded in half then run through the crimper. The brads are bargains from the Reject shop....a card of 12 for $1!!!!

Thanks for dropping by today. I will try and list all things used. I did make these some time ago!!

Lovin' the suede look Lynda, those flowers look divine. And how perfectly do your bargain basement brads match? Made in Heaven! xx
