Flower Soft, Not Just for Flowers

Just because a product is called Flower Soft, doesn’t mean it can only be used on flowers. When you look at the texture of this ultra fine Earth Flower Soft, you can see all kinds of uses for it- fur, dirt, or in this case- chocolate cake. I also want to show you that Flower Soft isn’t just for stamped images. I cut this piece of cake from the Cricut Sweet Treats cartridge. I pieced it together and then “painted” the Flower Soft glue onto the die cut.

The Flower Soft glue has a very fine point which is great for detailed areas, but not what I needed for this project so I brushed the glue on with a small paint brush. This made it much quicker to cover a larger area. I dumped the flower soft on and then shook off the excess. Even for this large area, I only had to use a little bit of the Flower Soft- a little goes a long way.

Here is a close up of the piece of cake all covered in the Flower Soft. You can see how the texture of the flower soft really looks like crumbly chocolate cake and now I have chocolate cake that looks good enough to eat! I added some liquid pearls to the cherry to give it a little shine.

The paper and sentiment for this card are from the Cricut Imagine Yummy cartridge. This cartridge is perfect for yummy birthday cards.

Don’t be afraid to step out of the box with your flower soft- cover those die cuts and add some texture to your projects!!!
