Flashback Friday 21.0 - First Paper Pieced Card

This month at Flashback Friday we are sharing our first paper pieced card. This is a technique that I have come to love, much to my surprise. For a non colorer like myself (I would dearly LOVE to be able to color in my images like so many of you, but I just can't quite stomach the investment in those markers right now when there's so much other stuff I want, plus I'm a little intimidated by it, if you want the truth) this is a great way to kind of get that affect without actually having to color or own lots of markers.

Anyway, it was fun to look back over my paper pieced projects since they are some of my favorites, and I'm so excited to share this card with you again because I really love it.

My original post was about how you can use non-Christmas stamps to make Christmas cards, and this was just one of the cards that I shared in that post. I love this PS stamp set, and have used it many times, but this remains one of my favorite cards. I had a great time putting it together, and hope you enjoy it the second time around too.

Supplies Used
Paper: White Daisy, Topiary and Cranberry Cardstock
Stamps: Paper Smooches Hot Concoctions
Ink: Black
