Spread Your Wings Paper Crane Card


simon get crafty orange crane

The current challenge on the Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog is “Get Krafty”. I used kraft as my card base.

The crane is cut out of this beautiful, iridescent, translucent paper. I got it as a sample with some order years ago (maybe California Paper Goods…I found a swatch in my CPG swatch book labeled “Metallic Papaya”…no company name). According to Google, it is WorldWin Metallic Vellum.

Here is a close up of the crane in direct sunlight – you have to see the shimmer!
