Faux Pressed Flowers

TGIF for some of you! It's my weekend to work though, so kinda like a Monday for me...LOL. Anyway, I am so excited about this new technique! If you use your prima flowers, it's called Faux Pressed Flowers, but if you use punched or die cut pieces (like the leaves), it's called Embedded Image. And it's SO easy! Just arrange the pieces, glue them down and use an embossing folder to get this look! I used the Square Lattice folder from Stampin' Up, but it would be interesting to try some other ones. I love new techniques that are easy!

Thanks for looking!
