Amber, (child number 3) sent me a box of goodies for Mother's Day. Included was a set of little bottles of colored flock, something I'd never used. I really anticipated them being messy and not easy to use but curiosity got the best of me and I had to try it. Wow was I surprised and really happy with the finished effect. I think I can safely say flocking is one of my favorite things to punch up a card with now. Thank you Amber!!!!
Barb Duhamell sent me a rak about the same time Amber's package came. In Barb's was this wonderful paper pad of Melissa Frances called 5th Avenue. This is the first Melissa Frances product I have and I love the papers, so soft, so beautiful. It just worked perfectly for my card. I stamped the side of the paper with a stamp from Rubber Stampede called Solidago Sprig and then used the purple flocking on the buds of the flower. What a pop this gives the card.
I punched the butterflies 3 times, placing the first directly on the paper and popping the other two one atop the other.
A very fast simple card that has a lot of punch when sent.
Try out flocking if you haven't already, I don't think you'll be disappointed with the results.
