A Little Bit of Magic Mesh



A few weeks ago, I went to a used scrapbooking supply sale and thought I'd scored a huge hit when I got a ziploc full of packages of SU's magic mesh. When I opened the bag, though, I discovered that each piece was only about an inch or so wide. What to do with it?

At first, I was upset that the lady hadn't mentioned that these were only *very tiny* pieces, 'cuz you couldn't tell from the way she had it arranged. Then I decided to look at this as a challenge, and here's the result of my first attempt to use it somewhere.

My hubby's brother and sister-in-law share the same birthday, so I decided to use some scraps to make them a card. The darker green CS is Stampin Up, along with the inks (Baroque Burgundy and Mint Melody). The 2 lighter green CS's are from Michaels, and I stamped the linen BG stamp onto the base CS to give it just a little more definition. I'm quite pleased with the way it all came together, and the card is now on its way to Ron & Bev in London, ON.
