Card Club - April - Recycled Paper
This petal paper is paper I made with recycled white paper and grass and flower petals. I just ripped the edges of the paper to just smaller than the top of the card. I prefer to have a rough edge. I put the lower half of the card through a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Hot glue is a good choice to adhere handmade paper to the card. I found paper and ribbon to match. I created the flower with the Stampin Up! five petal punch onto which I layered elliptical shapes from the Stampin Up! lattice die. Held onto the card with a large white brad. With a slit in the fold the ribbon is placed over the joint between the handmade paper and embossing.
