A card with Flower Soft and The Graphics Fairy

Originally, I was thinking I'd title this post, "My son the human backdrop."  This is why...



I cropped most of him out (poor son one), but I needed to take these last pictures outside because it was too dark inside.  Plus, it was windy, so I couldn't put the card down.  Thanks dude!



This is the urn image from The Graphics Fairy that I used.  The larger one is the wallet size and the smaller is the contact sheet size.  Could there please be a happy medium? Not today.

I went with the smaller size, since I was making a note card.  I printed it out on vellum and embossed it.



I cut it out and ran it through my Xyron sticker maker.  This went onto black card stock, and then onto my white note card.



It's Flower Soft time!  First, I drew very thin lines of glue, and sprinkled Ultra Fine Flower Soft (pine) onto these "branches."  This type is much less chunky than the original Flower Soft.



I put dots of glue all over the branches, as well as around them.  I chose Flower Soft in Heather for the bulk of these buds.  It comes packed in a jar, and you fluff it up a bit before you sprinkle it over the glue. I filled in with the Pale Green color.  See how much "chunkier" it is?



Here's a closer shot.  Don't you love the dimension of this stuff?  I have done other projects with Flower Soft in the past, and if you have any questions--please ask me! I could totally be a Flower Soft representative...Hello...Flower Soft?

  7. Christine, not only do I always enjoy and feel inspired by your creations, but I never fail to learn something new! I've never heard of Flower Soft. I love what you did with it, and I'm definitely looking forward to trying it. In what department of the craft store would one look for it?


    Thank you for sharing your talent on "A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday at Rook No. 17!
