Victorian Greetings


Card Stock 6 in x 12 in
Pressed rose with leaves
Wet craft glue for plant material 
Tsukineko Memento ink: Lady Bug
Paper doily
Glue stick
20 in of red ribbon about 1/2 in wide

1 Fold the card stock neatly in half length ways to make a stand-up card.

2 Carefully place the pressed rose in position on the front of the card, 
then remove and place wet wood glue on the flower. 
Press the flower in place and allow the glue to dry.

3 Cut the paper doily to trim the outside edges of the card. 
Ink the paper doily cuts out all over in TSUKINEKO Memento ink in Lady Bug 
Glue in place around the edges of the card with a glue stick.

4 Finally make two slits along the fold of the card, thread the stain ribbon through 
and tie into a pretty bow. 
You may also like to write the botanical name beneath the pressed flower.

I hope every one is having a good day or evening where ever you are.


  1. What a beautiful card! Thank you for sharing how to make it! Happy Monday to you :)

    1. Jes,
      Thank you. It really is very easy to make. If you don't have pressed flowers you can of course use stickers or cut out images.

  2. How gorgeous is that card, Shiralee! You are very talented.

    1. Nanna Chel,
      It's great being able to put some of those pressed flowers I have to use.

  3. Now that is really good - the receiver would be under no doubt of the time and effort put into making this - that was once the point of receiving cards - now-a-days you just check the price printed on the back to see how much was invested in you!

    1. Phil,
      Too true. It's nice to be able to show how easy and quick a simple card can be. As I said in above comments you can always use a simple sticker or cut out image if you haven't pressed flowers.
