You're back! So, did that make you a little teary or what? I knew when I read that letter, I needed to use my flocked paper!
Here is an example of a winter card I made with flocked snowflake paper and a snowman stamp by SU. The shimmer paper is the reverse of the flocked design. The half pearls are not scrapbooking supplies. They're actually for manicures and I ordered them on eBay. The container of several hundred itty bitty pearls was less than $2 with shipping. They're not self adhesive, so I attached them with Glossy Accents. Getting them in place would have been easier with tweezers, but my fingernails and patience did the trick.
Have you ever found a less expensive alternative to something sold in the craft stores like my half pearls? Leave me a comment with your money-saving paper crafting tips!
