Paper Crafter’s Library – Card of Gratitude

Today, we have a very special guest post for you!  Our friends over at Paper Crafter’s Library created this lovely card for us.  Now if you haven’t heard of this fabulous site yet, here’s a little bit about them:
The world of paper crafting is HUGE! Whether you are a beginner, or you’ve been creating for years, the sheer number of different products, tools, techniques and project ideas can be overwhelmingAfter spending 6 years helping thousands of paper crafters around the world become more successful in the creative space through her series of kits, digital tutorials and online classes, Andrea Walford began looking for a new approach to education. In 2011 she launched Paper Crafter’s Library – the first, and still to this day, only website that provides an all-in-one learning solution for paper crafters. With almost 800 videos currently in their library and 4-5 new videos added each week, Paper Crafter’s Library offers comprehensive training on products, tools, techniques, and project ideas. From beginner through to advanced, whether your interest is in stamping, card making, scrapbooking, creating 3D items or altered art – you’ll find all the resources you need to navigate the world of paper crafting in ONE place, organized and indexed so that it’s quick and easy to find.

And now for their project:



Card of Gratitude


“Today I was playing around with my May Arts ribbon and wanted to create a small flower that reminded me of Springtime.  With a little bit of hot glue added to the yellow 3/16” Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, the five petal flower was created!  My finishing touch was the addition of my May Arts “Leaves” Ribbon.  Trimming the Leaves ribbon down finished off the flowers to look just like a springtime flower.  What a great little embellishment for my paper crafting projects!”
