Vintage card set

I had such a fun time making this card set. I love working with old lace and velvet brads! The size is 3"x6". I double matted - so just take off a 1/2" to get your inside mat. The accordian flower is easy but trickey - you will need 2 hands. hee,hee. For the flower you will need a 3/4" x 12" double sided paper strip. Score every 1/2" all the way to the bottom of strip. Attach the ends and open it up like aflower ( thats the trickey part). Once you have it flat, like the flower, drop some glossy accents in the middle and hold (both hands)- put your brad in and let dry. Once you get all your flowers done then you are good to go embellishing your cards. Have fun with it!!!
