Sorry I've been absent for a while. I'm teaching myself some new technique to use on my paper crafts.
I started with this: card:
The other technique on this card is the black "lace". Here is a close up:
I'm not very good at explaining how to's so here are two video links. One for the YO-YO flower and one for the Xyron glue/glitter process.
A few other comments about the card:
This gorgeous pin came from June over at Lina Beas she makes fantastic pins and beautiful paper art. Thank you June and have a great time on your Cruise.
The pleated velvet ribbon was the inspiration for this card. I bought it at Walmart along with a package of valentine buttons that included the two white hearts. I used a very thin strip of black paper to "thread them". The simple stamp - came from a $1.00 clear stamp set at Michaels. The paper and it's all one sheet, came from a bundle of paper from Big Lots. The loop border actually goes all around the 8" square. I chose to use just a section without a corner.
Here are some more closeups of the card. Thanks for stopping by. Let me know if you have questions. I will also have a teaser image of what I've been working on for the rest of the week.
