This is a practical guide to using pressed flowers and other materials to make exquisite cards for every occasion. The cards range in style from highly ornamental designs based on intricate Indian textiles, to simple botanical cards reminiscent of pages from an old herbal and there are cards for all occasions, including birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and Christenings. As well as pressed flower material, the author also incorporates everyday items, such as spices and beads, into the designs, making each card unique. The detailed introduction explains how to use different papers, paints and fabrics as backgrounds and how to create different effects. Each card has been specially photographed in colour and is accompanied by easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions.
