In this tutorial I will show you how to make vintage looking pressed flower cards. This project is very easy to make, yet it looks like you put a lot of effort into it!
» Materials List «
• Cardstock • Pressed flowers • Facial tissues • Glue stick • School glue (a.k.a. White glue) • Water • Plastic container for mixing • Disposable brushes • Ruler • Scissors • Optional: paper cutter
» Instructions «
• Determine the size of the card you want. Since my design involved a large pressed flower, I went for a pretty large card. My card measured 6" wide and 11" long, unfolded. • Now fold your card in half and sooth out the fold. • Lay out your pressed flower design. Use your glue stick to attach your pressed flowers. • Time to dilute your glue! Mix 2 parts school glue with 1 part water in your plastic mixing container. • Take a facial tissue and pull apart the plies until you are left with one thin ply. • Lay your one ply tissue over the front of the card. Brush on your diluted glue. The wrinkles give the card a vintage look! • After your card is dry, cut away any overhanging tissue. Your card is complete!
