Operation Write Home Blog Skip- stickers

Welcome to the OWH blog skip. A blog skip is just like a blog hop but smaller. If you would like to start at the beginning of the skip please visit http://owhstarsandstamps.org/


 The subject of the skip is stickers. We were challenged to make a card using stickers and try to make them look as good as possible. Here is my card.
The butterfly stickers were small so I mounted them on white to make them stand out and look bigger. I mounted the white square on a color that matched each butterfly. The rainbow paper is from the American Girl slab at Michael's.

  25. love it! very simple but very cute. i like how you mounted the stickers on the white, that answers one of my issues with using sticker. i never want to put them on colored paper if they have white edges, i just don't think it looks very professional, but this looked perfect! love, andrea
