It is our friends (Fluff's godparents) anniversary today so Happy Anniversary wishes to you both. My chart tells me that 38 yrs is Beryl and guessing that it is either a stone or a rock I went in search of some info. Beryl is a mineral and when found in it's purest form is colourless. Now how do you represent colourless on a card!!
I was racking my brains on that one when I spied the box of left overs on my desk from a previous project where I had been die cutting an intricate doily shape out. I had used waxed paper for the first time along with the cardstock and the die cut worked like a dream and turned out perfectly without having to prick out all the tiny pieces. The wax paper shapes were what was left in the box too good to throw out and must come in handy for something I thought. Light bulb moment!! Wax paper is colourless and the doily shape when layered up made a rather nice flower and with a pearl adhered to the centre, perfect.
