The next step was to add the circle of purple foil paper. After that, all that remained was to stamp the irises onto lavender parchment, cut out a circle, highlight the edges with black ink, and glue the flowered paper on.
Thankfully, I discovered that the glue would not stick to the slick foil paper before I mailed the card! When I noticed that it was peeling off, I removed it completely and reattached it with tape. Noted for future reference!
Update: This card has won an honorable mention from CASology! “CAS” stands for “clean and simple,” which is how I like to make cards – deliberate use of white space, balance, and NO CLUTTER! 🙂 Every week they have a new theme. This one won in Week 80: Purple.
