Technique Thursday - Smashing Flowers

  1. Take flowers and lay them on white cardstock. You can use them whole or as petals.

  2. Take a piece of wax paper and place over the flowers/petals.

  3. With a hammer or rubber mallet begin "smashing" the flowers/petals.

  4. You can lift the paper to see the results and continue doing so until you get the look you want.

  5. Brush off the residue and let dry.

  6. As this is drying, cut your cardstock 8 1/2" x 4 1/4" (half sheet) and fold in half.

  7. Stamp your focal point and layer as desired.

  8. Tape the "background" paper on the card front after you cut it down to 5 1/4" x 4".

  9. Tape your focal point and saying on the card.

  10. Accessorize as desired!
