Easter card featuring pressed crocuses I made this Easter card using crocuses that I had pressed and dried in the microwave oven. I used the Microwave Flower Press or Microfleur to dry the flowers.

For information and instructions for doing this, please refer to this blog post: How to Use the Microwave Flower Press.

The background is embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I cut the white and purple circles using the Scalloped Circle die cuts from Spellbinder.

The gold pin is a simple hatpin, and the lavender strip is Martha Stewart microbeads on card stock.

I made about a dozen of these cards this year.
