Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Recessed and Raised Bouquet Cards with Pressed Flowers 2

Today, Melanie will show you how to create two gorgeous dimensional cards with just one pass through your die cutting machine using the A Year of Flowers 2/ Pressed Flowers 2 dies! I love the interest that the popped up background adds to your card and being able to stamp into the recessed, negative spaces. Arranging the dies this way is also a two-fer bonus that allows you to make the second card in a snap, with a new or different layout, or just save your cut flowers as individual embellishments for other projects. You can also create a similar look with her A Year of Flowers 2 line art stamp set and the same die set used in the video, leaving them uncolored or use your favorite coloring medium to fill in the blooms. Let us know in the comments which design you prefer.

Wow Melanie!  I love this technique!  I have never seen it before and I did not purchase the pressed flowers 2 set.  I am going to order it tomorrow night for sure!  You always do the most beautiful work, and I love all of your stamp sets!  Blessings, :)
