Hey Everyone! Today’s post is another one inspired by the Paper Play Sketches Blog Challenge. They’re one of my favorite’s card sketch challenge blogs, because they tend to keep the designs free of excess clutter, yet they still inspire. I highly recommend checking it out if you haven’t before.
When I first made this card, the floral embellishment didn’t come out of the machine quite the way I wanted. Some of the intricacies of the flower got damaged. To make up for that, I cut them out with an X-acto knife, and sanded down the front of the flower to to give it a distressed look. In retrospect, I probably should have sanded the edges of the floral paper as well, to round out the look. I’ll have to keep that in mind for next time.
