Splitcoast Tutorial!

Hi All,

I have a new tutorial being featured on Splitcoast today  -- Faux Pressed Flowers!  It's a way to get the look of old fashioned, pressed dried flowers on  your card.  Hope you'll check it out!  I've made several cards doing this technique that I haven't posted until now (including the two in the tutorial)...here ya go!

This one uses Cuttlebug's Houndstooth Embossing Folder.

This one uses SU's Square Lattice Embossing Folder. 



This one (full card is featured on the SCS tutorial) and the one below use SU's Square Lattice Embossing Folder also.

Several other folders that I know work really well too are the Tiny Bubbles folder, Tiny Mosaic Texture folderHerringbone folder, Mesh Texture folder.  Try it with some of the ones you have at home, and let me know!!  I'll come and check it out!!

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
