Materials Needed

Before we dive into the creative process, gather the following materials to make your fresh flower pressed cards:

  1. Fresh flowers 
  2. Cardstock or heavy paper
  3. Books or a flower press
  4. Glue or adhesive
  5. Colored pens or markers
  6. Scissors

Step-by-Step Guide:

Pressing the Flowers:

Place your fresh flowers between sheets of parchment paper within the pages of a heavy book or a dedicated flower press. Pressing helps preserve the flowers' vibrant colors and delicate shapes. Leave them to press for several days to ensure they are thoroughly dried and flat.

Creating Card Bases:

Cut your cardstock or heavy paper into desired card sizes. Fold each piece in half to create the card base. The card's size depends on your preference, but a standard greeting card size is often around 5x7 inches.

Arranging Pressed Flowers:

Once your flowers are fully pressed, carefully arrange them on the front of your card. Experiment with different compositions and combinations. Consider creating a focal point with a single flower or designing a whimsical pattern with multiple blooms.

Securing the Flowers:

Use glue or adhesive to secure the pressed flowers onto the card. Apply the adhesive sparingly to avoid any damage to the delicate petals. Press the flowers gently onto the cardstock, ensuring they adhere securely.

Adding Personalized Messages:

Open your card and write personalized messages using colored pens or markers. Let your creativity flow as you express your feelings, whether it's a heartfelt love note, a message of friendship, or a simple greeting.

Final Touches:

Take a moment to inspect your creation. Ensure that the flowers are securely attached, and the card exudes the charm you envisioned. Trim any excess paper or uneven edges for a polished finish.
