Just when you think you’ve seen all the wonders of Washi Tape, flower petals appear!
When I first saw this Pressed Petals Washi Tape in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! I wasn’t sure how to use it, but knew I had to have it. If you feel the same way, clicking on the picture in my Product List will take you to my store for ordering.
It turns out, the flower was easy to make. I peeled off six petals, attaching them together at the center. They were sticky, so, placed them on my Silicone Craft Sheet, and put a Perennial Essence Floral Center in the middle.
Before making today’s card, I read a tip from Jacquii, that the Embossing Buddy will remove the stickiness. It worked perfectly! She also told us that each roll has 100 petals, which is good to know.
Now, on to the card, where I found the layout at TGIF.
I’m in love with the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper, and I used a pattern that duplicates my “real” flower. I made a 2″ banner with the Banner Triple Punch, adding two layers for thickness.
The card base is Crumb Cake, topped with a 1/8″ Pressed Petals DSP border, and more Crumb Cake Cardstock that I embossed with the new Brick Wall Embossing Folder.
My flower is resting on a Crumb Cake hexagon, cut with a Stitched Nested Labels Die.
“Thinking of You” is from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set, and stamped in Merry Merlot Ink.
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed seeing the new Pressed Petals Washi Tape. Incidentally, the brown Washi Tape in the picture has verses on it. It’s unique also, and I’ll be using it in the future.
If you like it, order ASAP. I’m just guessing, but the Washi Tape and Floral Centers seem like “sell-out” items.
