Project details:

I used the clear half-sheet I got from SheetLoad and made a mini wall hanging.

I also used the sketch from SheetLoad. I cut my base paper 1 inch smaller than the plastic and adhered it to the back (so I can journal on the other side). I adhered all other papers and embellishments to the front.

Project Details:

I did an Easter Card, with a close up of the flocking I did on the bunny tales. They are stamped with Staz-On Ink then flocked just on the tales. The Yellow Folded Tab at the top is Short Cuts' own NoteOne downloadable image. My paper is DCWV and Stamps are Studio G. Glitter is Stickles and the punch border is the Martha Stewart Arched Lattice punch.
