Wooden Flower Cards

These cards all measure 5ins x 5ins and are made using ivory linen effect card.

I’m still continuing to try and make something from everything I bought at the NEC on Saturday …. I’ve used up one box of Kars wooden flower embellishments (£2.99 for 45 flowers, what a bargain!) to make a set of cards like these.

The papers are from the My Minds Eye, Stella and Rose, 6 x 6 pads I also got.

They are turning out to be my most favourite papers ever! But instead of keeping them just to look at, I am determined to use every last scrap!
Papers from Stella and Rose
All I have done is embellish the flowers with a tiny punched daisy and flat backed pearl.
