One Painted, One Crafted

My local arts store  (Curry's) had this gorgeous embossed sheet of paper on sale this week. One sheet of 18 X 24 " was a meesly $1.98. Too bad there was only one left. But when I saw it, I thought wedding right away. Little did I know that the next day I would get a call from a client that needed a 40th anniversary card. whaahoo...useful right away.

The flowers are made of tissue paper and Tim Holtz die cut (tattered florals), misted with perfect pearls...and a little hairspray hoping it would be a little stronger and not rip when removed from the envolope. Is there another way of making tissue stronger??? Let me know. The leaves were punched with a Martha Stewart, and I used, for the first time, that Velum paper.

The second card is painted with folk art paints, lots of glimmer paint added too as per the clients request. Her favourite color being mauve!

I always add an extra sheet of paper inside an ordered card....with some added painted flowers or stamps just to give it that extra specialness to it.
