Mother of Pearl MkII

Ooh, just found this in my files – something I made a while ago and forgot to post. It showcases the Mother of Pearl technique, which you can read about here so I won’t go over it again.

After stamping the tree, I punched some tiny flowers with the Itty Bitty Punches and added some ever-so-tiny pearls. I stamped “just for you” from the Just Believe stamp set – see? This tree doesn’t have to be for a sympathy card. In fact, I really like this tree for lots of occasions.

(By the way, that isn't a fancy corner on the right of the card front - it's just my black cloth which I use as a backdrop!)
