MC Aug/16 - Punch Flowers Faux Lace - ECD Forever Friends - Those Who Find - Enjoy Your BD

So I found an easier way to do this faux lace technique... applying the tape to a craft sheet, moving it around and then pressing the cardstock down and lifting the tape. Real easy on the fingers this way...

And while I was at my last get together with the gals, made a bunch more of the punch flowers. I tried spraying them with Spray Starch which helped a bit but no where as stiff as I would like,,, so need more experimenting. But really like the results of them this time.'m using one of the newest A Way With Words dies which will be available soon on Elizabeth Craft Designs "Forever" and are now in pre-order. Also available on Quietfire Design HERE. I'm also using a previous release word "Friends" and on Quietfire Design HERE

Hi Yogi! Excellent idea of laying the tape down on a craft sheet first! this definately would save your fingers rubbing the tape! Will have to give it try.... thanks! Your card is beautiful. Love those flowers.
