these cards and thought that would do very well for spring cards!! I created the background paper by sandwiching pressed botanicals between two pieces of white tissue paper using Matte Modge Podge. I love it!!
I cut the background paper to fit a white layer I had trimmed to fit on my purple card fronts. I used a glue stick to adhere them just in the middle and then used my sewing machine with white thread to stitch them together and incorporated a yellow strip of cardstock while I was at it. I glued this decorative layer to my card front and added a punched colour printed greeting (SU) overlapping the strip!!
The botanical paper really needs to be backed with white to highlight the colour and detail of the paper. Only a few more pieces of this paper left but I have scanned it so I can always print off a few sheets but it will not have the same translucency and texture!!
