Good Afternoon everyone! As promised, I'm back with another version of faux suede. This time its the version that can be found almost everywhere. You basically distress a piece of card stock with a bone folder to the point where you can pull it apart into two pieces. I decided to make flowers with all these pieces I started playing with.
I made this for my friend Deb's birthday - she's also my partner for the suede challenge for the monthly card traders group and I hope she likes this. Tell me what you think....
I made everything on this card (except the card stock). The carnations or mums, depending on your interpretation are purple even though they look blue in this photo. I made those from a scallop punch, the little blue flowers are made from a small flower punch and the peach flowers from a 5 petal punch. I glued them onto a green oval piece of card stock with ribbon leaves and finished it with a bow. I created a recessed window card that is an A2 card, but trust me, this has a 1/2" depth, it won't fit in an A2 envelope.
Here's a close up of my paper flower arrangement....
These flowers were so easy to make!
