Also, besides all the above, you, of course, can not do without skillful pens, fresh portions inspiration and unstoppable imagination, because it is unlikely that it will be possible to repeat exactly the hand-made thing, and you will have to create your own masterpiece! So, for the beginning we are working with a small motif, which in this case was cut out of dense wallpaper. The right edge is decorated with a scalloped border. To do this, simply glue a strip of double-sided tape on the front side of the motive,and then put a guipure tape on the adhesive strip so that the festoons look beyond the edge of the motive and subsequently overlap the background.

Gently press the braid so that it is well fixed, and turn over the decorative element. We trim the excess braid and unnecessary festoons, leaving 1.5 cm allowances on each side. We glue them with pieces of double-sided tape on the wrong side of the wallpaper motive.

Now we decorate the card with romantic and delicate floral elements. From the satin ribbon we twist the roses. We try to make them as flat as possible. You do not need to make them too big and bulky, there will be enough roses with 2-3 rows of ribbon. The maximum diameter of the flower is not more than 1.5 cm. We sew the roses from the wrong side so that the thread does not “climb” onto the front side of the flower. Then we draw the thread in the middle and sew a bead. We take the thread back inside out and fasten it. Just tedious to make three flowers. Although, of course, you can make 5 or even more flower motifs at will.

Luxury Vintage Card To the roses were more decorated and refined; from the shreds of organza we will make stylized sepals for each flower. To do this, we cut out three shreds with a diameter of about 4-5 cm.It does not matter that the rags are uneven, you should not strive for a perfect circle.

Lit a candle and gently process on open fire sections of rags. Take care not to burn your fingers and burn organza. To do this, do not bring the fabric too close to the fire - the slices should only slightly burn out. If you hold the edge of the shred to the side of the flame, then the edges will simply melt slightly, without losing their shape. And if you bring a cut of fabric on top of the flame, then the edge will not only be scorched, but also fancifully bend, giving the shape of a calyx nest to the shred. Make sure that the entire perimeter of the sections was scorched, otherwise the unburned edge threatens to dismiss and “derail”. Thus scorch all three pieces of organza. After that, place the roses into organza sepals.

Take a thread with a needle and simply sew the resulting flowers to double thread to the front of the postcard.Boldly flash all the layers at once: plain cardboard, wallpaper motif, guipure lace, if you find roses on it, organza sepal and the ribbon flower itself. So you securely fasten your little creations on a postcard. 2-3 stitches on one flower are enough. From the wrong side, you can glue the place of stitches and threads with adhesive tape or a drop of glue for the sake of reliability.

First, fold the base of the card in half, so that when folded, it is 13.5x20.5 cm. To make the fold line smooth and accurate, you can firmly attach a ruler to it and gently place a thick needle in the place of the future fold, as if scratching a straight line. This is especially recommended if the cardboard is very thick and dense. Having bent the base in half, glue it around the perimeter with strips of double-sided tape. Make sure the corners have been taped.You can also stick a couple of strips in the middle for extra strength.
