Rebecca Luminarias is hosting the "paper" challenge over at Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-faire, and shows wonderful embellishments you can make with paper for your cards. I loved her tassels, but since I didn't have any of the end caps she used, I decided to try my hand at the paper strip bows.
My granddaughter Addy starts pre-school in 2 weeks, and I thought it would be fun to send her a card using the Pencil Me In stamp set and the Just The Jar: Quart stamp set. I used a piece of Raspberry Fizz DSP for my background and then embossed the jar on vellum and glued it to my background, leaving the top open so I could insert the pencils I stamped and cut out. (thought Addy would get a kick out of being able to remove the pencils from the jar!) I added my paper strip bow which I absolutely love how it turned out, and also a Tiny Tag sentiment.
You can check out all the cards with paper embellishments right HERE.
