Tim Holtz Stenciled Collage Paper – by Deb Saaranen

Deb is sharing a stunning card today that she created with the NEW Tim Holtz Collage Paper called Aviary. (Have you seen these papers – oh my!) She used a stencil to emboss atop the paper using embossing paste, and then tinted it with a beautiful metallic lustre. And her signature seam binding bow topped it off beautifully! Take a look:


WOW! Just gorgeous!

I truly love the vintage shabbiness of this project.

Here’s the inside – a lovely sentiment from Scripture.

What a treat to receive and how much fun to make this beauty!
