Believe it or not, that beautiful panel is a paper napkin. Some time ago I saw THIS video on Pinterest and I was just delighted and fascinated about it. I'm always willing to give new things a try and this looked so very interesting and easy to do that I went to the kitchen, grabbed a paper napkin from the holder and proceeded to do this ''magic''. To my absolute surprise it worked!! just like in the video, how cool is that!!!
I bought the package of 24 paper napkins I used for this card for $1.00 at this Antique store here in town and I wish you could feel this card, it feels like I fused a piece of fabric to the card stock. Now that the Holidays are approaching, there are tons of amazingly beautiful paper napkins designs out there and I plan to get me some, I hope you give this a try.
Now, I die cut the butterfly with THIS set I bought a looooong time ago from Serendipity Stamps. I think I've used it twice, sheeesh!!
Here is a close up of this beautiful and intricate die.
The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set and it's stamped with SU Strawberry Slush ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I've discovered that stamping on Vellum takes long to dry and heat embossing it prevents the ink from smearing. I applied a little bit of Wink of Stella to the wings, I hope you can see it in this photo.
This is the Muse card that inspired mine.I want to thank you for visiting me today. I hope you go take a looksee over at the Muse challenge blog and give this challenge a try. Please leave me your comments, I love reading them. If you have any questions, I will be more than happy to answer them. Till next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
