Thank you cards
They feature the restructured paper I made a while back using owl postage, tissue paper, paper napkin and skeleton leaves!! I wanted to highlight the paper so I only added a small tag and some lace. I cut the tags using a Sizzix (SX) scallop tag die, stamped the greeting in black and sponged the edges. The card on the right features reused cardstock which was a Chapters gift card enclosure from years ago. Added a butterfly! To make the butterfly I stamped black cardstock with bleach using a butterfly stamp (SU), used the butterfly punch (SU) to cut them out and tied on some cording to create the body and antenna. I really like the look of making butterflies this way which I found somewhere on the internet. I will add a link when I recover it. I added some black lace seam binding in the hole and adhered it to the card front using 3D foam tape.
It is always fun having a party!! Catherine, my SU demo, always has fun make and takes and is always showing us some new technique or product. I have ordered CD cases this year in hopes of storing my unmounted stamps in a way that I can more easily access them.
