The wandering thoughts of a senior citizen who loves to make greeting cards.
Tuesday, October 30, 2012
One of my hobbies for years has been pressing flowers and leaves. The colorful leaves deserve to be preserved. They are never as colorful as when they are fresh, but still make lovely cards. I needed some cards for personal use and decided to use some of the leaves I pressed a couple of years ago.
I chose a Cuttlebug embossing folder for these cards. I used a variety of patterned papers with a green tone. I then highlighted the embossed swirls with Brilliance Cosmic Copper ink. The sentiments were stamped with the same ink.
I attached the leaves with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid glue.
