A Mother's Day Card

The swirly foiled paper from the Bride Specialty Designer Series Paper can be sponged or brayered to create your own multi-coloured designer paper! I used 2 different inks (eventhough it's hard to tell with this picture), using Regal Rose to cover the whole piece and then went back with Rose Red around the edges.

The flower is made using the Fancy Flower punch to create 2 flowers. Then doing the faux suede technique, crumple the paper to break apart the fibers until you can pull the two layers apart to end up with 4 flowers that were layered together. We used the 5 petal punch to create the leaves and added a jewled brad to the centre. Viola!

Very pretty, I keep meaning to try this technique. I hope they keep this paper in the new catalog.

Thanks for sharing,

I just love the look you get when you brayer this paper. PERFECT!
