Do you want to know how to make a quick flower embellishment?  The quickest and easiest way is to use the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape found on page 172.  There are 2 rolls of washi tape, one consists of beautiful individual flower petals and the other roll of washi tape has random text on it.  I just pulled off 5 petals and stuck them down on my card.  The petals are self adhesive.  Super quick birthday card! Here’s today’s card:

Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape #149585

How to DIY:

  • Merry Merlot Card base – 11′ X 4 1/4″ score and fold at 5 1/2″
  • Designer Series Paper – 2″ X 4 1/4″
  • Whisper White cardstock to stamp sentiment and punch out with a 2″ circle punch
  • Crumb Cake cardstock scrap and punch a 2 1/4″ circle to layer behind the sentiment
  • 4 /14″ strip of washi tape
  • Merry Merlot cardbase front embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder
  • Perennial Essence Vellum – use the Leaf punch to punch out 2 sets of leaves.  Use glue dots to adhere the vellum leaves.
