Healing Hugs Floating Frame technique

When it comes to stamping, I always love to learn new techniques.  Today;s projects feature the Floating Frame Technique and with it you can create two cards at once.  So first you need to look through or kitchen, or head on over tho the grocery store from some Press & Seal Plastic Wrap.  No regular cling wrap will do, it MUST be Glad Press & Seal for this technique to work.  It’s hard to tell from the photo but there is so much depth & dimention to this card because all of the flowers and leaves are popped up.
