The front of this card is made using a napkin. There are so many pretty napkins out there -- now you can use them for more than just wiping crumbs from your mouth!
Good quality, 3-ply napkins are what you need because using scotch tape, you're going to separate the printed design layer from the other two white layers.
Open up the napkin and cut it into four pieces. Just touch a piece of tape to the back and gently pull away the layers one at a time until you are left with the translucent printed layer.
Cut a piece of card stock the size of the design you want to end up with. Hold it with a clothespin over a box so you don't get the spray on you and everything else! Spray, move the clothespin and spray where the pin was at first so all surfaces are covered.
Lay the napkin piece face down and place the sprayed card stock over it. Turn over and use your finger to 'burnish' the napkin and smooth it all out. Trim the edges.
Embellish however you like. For this card I used a fine, glitter pen to outline the flower and added a few of these clear dots to look like water droplets on the rose.
I always create my own sentiments, print them on plain paper and attach them inside the card.
If you're like me, once I learned this technique, I never looked at napkins the same way ever again!
Happy Valentine's Day!
