Simon threw me a challenge

Do you need a tissue?  Simon Says Monday challenge was to use tissue paper.  oh dear, that is something I have never tried.  All the samples they showed were waaaaaay to complicated for me.  I thought about this all week and finally put something together this evening.  It’s simple but it’s tissue.  I wanted to make a special card for a  special young friend and thought the tissue would be pretty.

After embossing the tag portion of the card; I took some tissue paper and ran it through the same embossing folder.  then used my glue pad to put glue all over the embossed portion of the tag.  I lined up the pattern with the tissue paper and then folded it all behind.  I then took Smooch spray and sprayed the tissue paper to give it an even softer look and take away the white white of it.   I learned a new technique and had a bit of fun doing it.  I really like the way this turned out.  Something else new was to punch the heart and then line the back with the same paper as the band going across.  Then I filled in the entire heart with stickles.  I love the sparkle.  My new favorite embellishment are the Candi’s buttons.  Just the right touch.  Thanks for stopping by.
