Loving Faux Suede!

The flowers on these cards is the Faux Suede Technique! It is so easy and I love it!



The flowers are punched with the Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch. Then you curl the cardstock with a bone folder and your thumb like you would ribbon. Do this to both sides in all directions until the fibers are broken. The cardstock will start to split. Pull the pieces apart carefully into two pieces. There you have it, Faux Suede. To see a better view of what this looks like just click on the pictures and it will show an upclose of the cards.


The back-ground of the cards is Emerging Color. I used a stencil on these cards but you can easily use a stamp. First I stamped the background in Chocolate Chip with the Very Vintage Wheel. Then I inked the area of the stencil with versamark and then embossed with clear embossing powder. Then sponged color using Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip and Sahara Sand.
Everything is ©Stampin' Up!
