Thanks-- you're the best! Card using the cake basic cards

Hello, friends!

Today's card is made with the Cake basics card. I cut one of the flowers in various sizes. Then I sprayed the three flowers with glimmer mist, crumpled the pieces, and dried them with a craft heat gun. If you do it this way it stays nice and crumpled.


The paper is Papertrey Ink and the stamp is Close To My Heart.



Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Very nice job. I don't have Cake Basics, but I do have Forever Young and can cut some flowers with that and try this. What patterned paper did you use. That was a perfect combination of colors!
