When recently shopping with Brandy, we happened across a pad of Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine Paper. Don't ask me why I felt like I needed a pad of this paper. Don't ask me what I thought I was going to do with it. I can't explain these things any more. I find that sometimes it is just about how cheap it is (you better bet that I used a 40% off coupon and the cost was just north of $5). Sometimes it is because I like it (the texture that is inherent to this paper is fabulous). Sometimes it is just that you don't want to walk out of the store empty handed (this is particularly true when shopping with friends).
Either way, I did have occasion to use the paper in a couple of recent cards. We had the misfortune of losing a close friend earlier this year and a good friend lost her mother in December. The memorials happened to occur within days of each other and these adorable flowers came in handy for a monochromatic looking sympathy card.
