I have wound metallic thread around a flower shape cut from a Cricut.
These are cards I am donating to Operation Write Home (an organization that sends handmade cards to our heroes overseas so they have something nice on which to write home!) Since this was made for a soldier to write home on, the inside of the card is not black because I mounted the black square onto a white cardstock base.
Have you noticed my background? I have several hardback books that are the same color and I simply stood them upright to block out the (very) messy background.
