Friendship Flower Card using Modeling Film

Morning everyone
Hope you have all had a great weekend.

I have mentioned in previous posts that I am on a mission this year to use some of my old craft stash up.

During a cleaning session in my craft room (I know a horrifying thought) I came across a pack of Modeling Film so I thought I would try it out on a card.

I have mixed views about this Modeling Film but I was happy with how the card turned out although it was difficult to photograph.

FloLangleyFlutteringHearts January2015 2 019awmI stamped my hearts on to the Film using Black Staz-On and when the ink was dry I cut the hearts out and heated them with a heat gun and shaped them.  This Film goes quite flimsy when heated but goes quite rigid when cool.

FloLangleyFlutteringHearts January20153 070awmThis is not the best photo but it does give you an idea as to the shape of the flower.

To make the card
I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of pretty paper which had been cut to size and attached it to my base card.
I then attached my flower, with the addition of some Crafty Individuals silver metal leaf embellishments, using hot glue.
To finish off I attached, again using hot glue, a large black button in the center of the flower.
