Very Vintage Pressed Petals

Hello stampers. It is a Friday afternoon here in southern Ontario and it is officially summer and it feels like it too! Can’t complain about the heat after such a long wet and cold spring! (I didn’t get the post finished, so it is now almost noon on Saturday!!) I have just discovered the Pressed Petals paper and the coordinating washi tape. Both are just so lovely!! I did a quick Facebook Live video on my page, I am hoping that you can access it here. Pressed Petals has a very vintage feel to it and the washi flowers look so real you want to touch them! I am very, very impressed. I think you will have a LOT of fun with this product. As adults we definitely need to play as well and I think that is something that is seriously lacking in most people’s lives. When is the last time that you played?

The best part of this card is the amazing washi tape flower! It looks like a roll of washi tape but it is actually individual petals with which to make very realistic flowers. They are beautiful to look at and touch and the delightful surprise is that they are so very easy to make.

 

Pressed Petals washi tape for making flowers

 

The best tool for making these pressed petals washi tape flowers is the silicone mat. After you have made your flower, use the embossing buddy and tap the back of the flower to take the stickiness away. That way your flower will sit naturally on the card and not get stuck to it and lose the dimension.

Let’s take a look at the inside of the card. I used the other spool of washi tape which is absolutely beautiful and also has a great vintage feel to it. I used Woven Heirlooms for the sentiment.
