C066 Mulberry Paper Collage

Prepare card by folding 8½ x 51/2” burgundy cardstock in half. Crease fold with a bone folder. Mount with 51/4” x 4” white cardstock. Set aside.

Tear different colored mulberry papers into pieces varying the size and shape. Using a glue stick, apply torn mulberry paper to 5 x 33/4” white cardstock or sticker paper until the surface is covered. Wrap and glue the mulberry paper to the back of the cardstock.

Cut a length of gold thread approximately 36” long and wrap around the collage. Adhere the ends of the thread to the back. Mount to card.

Layer a large cancelled postage stamp onto a burgundy cardstock scrap. Trim with fancy scissors and adhere to the top left corner with mounts.

Swipe 3” x 41/2” burgundy cardstock with a static bag. Gold emboss the butterfly 03.054.M page 14 and Cut out. Curl the wings and glue only the body to the bottom right hand corner of the card.

Inspired from The Rubber Stamper March/April 2000 magazine page 29, designed by Karen Sigler.

First taught this class on February 26, 2003.
