Mini Technique Book

Our second project at technique club this week was this mini book with pockets to put the techniques we play with at each meeting. The book is made out of the scallop envelope die for the bigshot cutout of crumbcake cardstock. The word 'create' is black embossed on the cover and the cover is finished off with flocked black dsp from the mocha morning pack, the new cherry cobbler scallop dotted ribbon and a flower made with the smalled flower from the fun flowers die. For the flower you cut one flower out and crumple it up and then work it with your bone folder until you break down the fibers enough to separate the flower into 2 layers...this is what gives you that suede/brushed softer look. The flower was finished off with a black medium flower from the boho blossoms punch and a rhinestone brad. I chose to use this flower technique on the cover because I was asked about it by a couple of the girls in the group, so it was a bit of a bonus technique of sorts;) The stampset used on this project was the Creative Elements one which is quickly becoming a new favourite for me because it is so versatile!:)
