Making your own cards is less expensive than buying them at the store. There are a few things that help make it not as costly. Number One - Buy your card supplies at a lower price. Go to the clearance section in the store and search for anything that could be used as a card. Number Two - Make your own pressed flowers here.

You'll make some one's day when they receive a card that you put your time into making for them.

Step 1
Decide where the flowers and other embellishments will be placed by just laying them on the card.

Step 2:
On a junk piece of paper, one at a time, cover each piece entirely with glue on one side. Place on the card in desired position.

Step 3:
After all pieces are glued on, coat the top of them entirely with glue, try not to get any on the card. Place a piece of waxed paper (found in your kitchen drawer) over entire card.

Step 4: 
Place a heavy object, like a book on top, of the waxed paper. This project dried for 6 hours before removing the book, drying time can vary. After dry, carefully peel off waxed paper. Cut off any excess from the edges of the card.
