I love paper crafting!

 Paper Pretties
 Ready to assemble
Finished Card

Making a batch of cards is what I enjoy doing most in paper crafting. I find it so relaxing to get into my 'zone' and create paper "pretties". I make a whole bunch of the 'pretties' and then I can put them together to make the cards. 

The flowers are Prima and Recollections. I painted them with gesso, watercolors and grundged them up with Distress Vintage Photo ink.  The paper I used is "French Riviera", by Prima- love that paper! Its vintage and French and shabby and beautiful.  I used Stampin' Up and Tim Holtz dies and stamps and a Martha Stewart butterfly punch. The diecut bumble bee is a new Stampin' Up die from the Dragonfly Dreams set. The butterfly and the bumble bee match so well, you would think they were made for each other.  Happy Crafting!
