Paper Piecing Mother's day card


This was fun to do. I stamped the flower on 3 different papers, cut out all the petals and then put it back together again on a piece of white paper. I am finally becoming half way decent with an exacto knife after 40 years. I was always amazed how well my mother could cut things out when she used to do intricat decoupage back in the 70s. I can only hope to be as good someday.

I love the way you used the flowers. You did good with the glitter.

You know people always say "practice make perfect" keep using the xacto knife and you'll be just as good.
