A napkin and some plastic wrap...


I know, I'm always doing something a bit different, and this card is no exception!  LOL  I found a video on YouTube in which a woman was making cards using an iron to adhere the face of a "fancy" napkin to card stock with Cling wrap.  I loved the idea, but had never tried it myself.  I shared this on a couple of forums that I visit, and the next thing I knew I got a surprise shipment from Australia (thank you Sandie!!) in which I found some stunning napkins.  So, here's my first attempt.  I used both black and red card for the background and card itself.  On the face of the card above is the napkin.  It's off white, gray, and black with a bit of red up at the center top.  I added half pearls (white ones colored with my Copics to match the red card stock .. Thanks for the tip Heather!)  I added the bling flourish, a ribbon, and sentiment which comes from Paulette from Create with TLC. It was easy!  I like the texture that the napkin adds to the card.  Here's the video:


Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look!  I hope you learned something new that you can try.
Big Hugs,
