Project - Cards using Silk Flowers for Embellishments
posted 12/04/10 at 06:18 PM
With these two cards I used silk flowers left over from some old bouqets I had in the basement supplies. I spent an afternoon taking apart bouquets and throwing away the inside plastic stem and removing all but the leaves and petals. I then replaced all the pieces back together on a long Brad and made a more usable flower to put on the front of a card. I found that adding the leaves separately worked better because I would then have the option to place them further out so they would be seen easier.
Also by making the flowers this way allows you to be able to send these through the mail a lot easier. You do have to pay extra of course but it is worth it to use such a beautiful embellishment on a card. When it comes to sending cards through the mail, I always believe more postage is better than not enough.
