My good friend Irmgard invited Jenn and I over for card making.
I had been invited along on a flower gathering walk before but I had never actually made a card. The flowers and leaves are pressed and somewhat organized in a number of old telephone books.
The arrangement is worked face down on paper. These are fantasy arrangements as bits and pieces of all kinds of leaves and curlicues are used. Then a clear piece of mac tac is carefully laid down. The plastic with the flowers adhered on it is then placed on the background. It could be in a picture frame. We made cards and I was impressed by how lovely they turned out. It only took about 45 minutes!
oh dear, another hobby???
