Cath's newest Moxie Fab Challenge is to use tissue paper in an innovative way.



Many, many years ago when I first became interested in paper crafting  I took a class at a local college. They taught a lot of the basics of papercrafting. Back then it was dry embossing, embossing using powder, and other basics. One of the things I learned was how to make tissue paper envelopes. I haven't made one in years but this challenge inspired me to use that technique. The other thing that triggered this card is some pretty tissue paper that was part of a gift that my friend Nan gave me. I usually use envelope templates to create the envelopes but this one was made with Papertrey Ink's envelope die. The tissue paper butterfly was made with a MS punch.
Thank you for visiting:)
