DIY: Moxie Fab Tissue Paper Magic Challenge

April 29, 2011

You know what the difficult thing is about tissue paper?
If you try to work with it in small pieces, the slightest breeze causes it to fly everywhere.  I mean – if you so much as blink, you will be chasing this stuff all over the place.
With this in mind, it’s only fitting that my tissue paper project features butterflies – which were flying all over my apartment as I tried to assemble this card!

Last night, I even found a tissue paper butterfly in my bed – I guess that sucker fluttered his way all across my apartment and decided to take a nap. Can’t blame him …I like naps too!

I was able to capture a few of these guys and came up with this card:

I die cut the butterflies with the Martha Stewart All Over the Page Punch – Classic Butterfly. The punch is great for cutting several layers at once.
Another fun tidbit:
By using tissue paper for these butterflies, I was able to add tons of dimension and interest to this card, without added bulk. You can easily flatten the butterflies and mail this card in a regular envie – with no extra postage!
Now head over to Moxie Fab to see all the wonderful entries into this challenge! 
(P.S. I have done what I said I would not do …I have joined the world of left justified blogs. Apparently, centered type is difficult to read – or so they say. So have fun reading all of my left justified ramblings!)
Thanks for stopping by for some Damask Love!
Supplies: 
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Polka Dot Basics, Fillable Frames #4)
Ink: Stampin’ Up (Elegant Eggplant, Tempting Turquoise), Vivid Dye Ink (Fuchsia, Olive Green)
