Pressed Flower Frame meets Waterfall

Today`s workshop is how to make the frame that would be able to be used for a waterfall card – or just as a topper should you wish – part 2 tomorrow will be the measurements on how to make larger waterfalls

If I had the choose again I would have had a not to busy backing paper but – at least you can see the idea of the different take on the waterfall card – the Fan and paper are from the Victorian Birthday`s Cd

1. Take your card you want the frame to stamped on and dust with an anti static bag


2. Stamp the frame out – this can be the rectangle one or as the main photo an oval

Stamp onto the card using Versamark ink pad & sprinkle with your embossing powder – I have used `Halo` as it has a lovely sprinkle – now emboss the powder with your heat gun


3. Now cut the inside off the frame out – this will allow you to see the Pressed flowers  – trim the outside of the frame with a straight line near to the edge – on the back apply double sided tape around the frame and apply a piece of acetate slighty smaller the the outside of the frame – Again dust the acetate with your anti static bag  

Tomorrow I will show how to make the measurements for different widths of panels for your waterfall cards


4. Using a piece of gold silk mirri cut it slightly smaller than the frame


5. Set the frame to one side and now arrange some pressed flowers and leaves in the centre – I use copydex to glue the flowers into place


6. Using DST again place the frame over the flowers leaving your border around the edge – you will need 4 of these for your waterfall card


Here are the Instructions for a smaller waterfall card – as I have said i`ll post part 2 on how to do larger ones

The below photo`s are a different take on the waterfall using vellum to give a soft effect and I have  attached it using thin 3mm red tape under the edge border – attaching it to white underneath and then you can use your wider tape to fix to the mirri

Thanks for looking in again

Please also look in at the Monthly Advise section – you may have a question ???
