Popping in today to share 5 ways to use the Ever Eden cotton paper that is part of the Eden’s Garden collection of products. This paper is so fun and versatile. The cotton paper is similar to tissue paper but not quite as transparent and just a little thicker.
For this first card I’m sharing a technique called faux linen. I stamped on the tissue paper first, then crinkled it up and added it to a piece of cardstock. It provides so much texture to the project. You can see how the technique is done in the video at the bottom of this post.
You can also create beautiful, dimensional flowers. I created this flower using 8 layers of the same sized die cut circle. I simply folded the cotton paper to create 8 layers and then ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss using one of the layering circles dies. If you add a brad or a staple to the centre of the circles to hold them together and then just ruffle the layers, it gives you a nice full flower.
This sample shows you how you can still get the beautiful stitching detail when you die cut the cotton paper.
And the last sample for today, my favourite, features the cotton paper embossed with the Merry Melody 3D embossing folder.
