I've always loved this card...

...using a scrunched flower from Wendy Smedley.

You can use tissue paper too. Gorgeous.

I used my grandfather's hymnal.

No, not sacrilegious, but special.

If you look really closely you can see the faux stitching around the outside of the pink layer and through the middle of the leaves.

And if you look reeeaaally closely you can see Stickles glitter on the flower. See it?

Ah, nice.

This card makes me happy.

It's the unusual colour combination (for me), the lined paper and Grandpa's hymnal paper that makes it sing (ha ha...true) and feel calm all at the same time.

  1. Hi Debra,

    I made a little bouquet for one of Daniel's teachers who were leaving using this flower. It looked great! I used an old bible with the really thin paper. While I was punching I kept thinking "What would my nanna think?" She'd be dissappointed I'm sure. Like you said it makes it special.


  2. Hi Jammie, Oh, your bouquet of flowers sounds lovely...what a gorgeous gift and a great use of your rad creative skillzzz. Very special!
