Make It Monday #18: Tissue Paper Texture

I decided to participate in another Make It Monday Challenge at PTI.

As I was looking through my tissue paper collection from The Dollar Tree, I realized I didn't quite have the type of paper to create a "vintage" or "soft" feel for a card.  This is what I had:


So, naturally, the Cupcake Shape Up Series Die seemed like the most appropriate choice.


I was really hoping that the crinkled paper would stay, but once I put it through the cuttlebug, it flattened right out.

I look forward to trying this tissue paper technique again!
