|Pretty pearlescent pockets adorned with vellum flowers.|
Choose pearlescent paper for the pockets, vellum for the flowers. Score the pocket fold lines using an embossing tool held against a metal ruler. Chalk the flower petal edges to give them definition. The Tonic Studios Petal Pairs are made in the usual way - interlock the layers. The leaves are cut from a Petal Pairs shape and scored down the centre with an embossing tool to create a vein effect. Pinch the leaf fold for dimension.
Glue the leaf onto the flower using tacky glue - you glue it onto the bottom flower petal layer, so no need to worry about vellum show-through. The Card Candi flower centre is fixed in place with a sticky foam pad, and the flowers are attached to the pockets with foam pads, too. Finish with a taffeta bow.
Here are the patterns - Loopy Basket or Grab Bag design:
