Fun with Florals!

Fun with Florals!

In amongst the treasures I brought home with me from Arizona was a pack of Heidi Swapp laser cut papers. There were some lovely designs that I thought would be gorgeous by themselves, but that would also be fun to use as masks.

One of the papers is a pile of beautiful roses. I used it as a mask to create the background for this card.floral mask || noexcusescrapbooking.com

To make the background, I pounced make up sponges loaded with a couple distress inks over the mask to color in the flowers. The card is finished off with a happy birthday rub on, decorative scissors, and a flower sticker from an ancient K & Company set.

Card making really doesn’t have to be complicated. If you want to make cards, remember, they don’t need fifteen layers of paper and 6 different techniques. Keep it simple. Especially if you’re going to be sending your cards through the mail. More complicated and dimensional cards can be damaged when mailing, unless you take precautions.
