Happy Birthday...tissue style


Happy Wednesday! I'm loving a short week! Were you lucky enough to have one too?

I took advantage of my holiday by stamping up this little card! I stamped the vine from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Casual Elegance set onto a piece of torn tissue paper. Next, I stitched up the center on the "stem" and then gathered it loosely, kind of pulling and scrunching as I went and attached it with a few mini glue dots.

You might remember I stitched on some tissue paper here, but Laura is the one who got me thinking about stamping on tissue paper when she shared this post here, because she's been inspired by Rahel Menig here. Wow, she is crazy talented with a light wispy look involving stitching, loose threads, tissue paper. Check it out, you won't be disappointed!

Let me know if you try stamping on tissue paper, would love to see it! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
