Napkin Focal Thanks

Awhile back I showed you some cards I made using decorative napkins.  Here's another one.

First, a quick review of the technique.  Make sure you peel the napkin layers apart and only use the printed one.  Napkins usually come in 2 or 3 layers and if you don't separate them and just use the top one, you'll find your lovely decorations on your card start coming apart!  After that it's pretty simple.  Cut out the elements you want to use, apply glue to the back and smooth firmly (but GENTLY!) onto your card.  I use a glue stick for this, but it CAN tear the paper.  I've also used a stencil brush with YES! paste.  You want to cover the element with glue as any little parts that aren't glued down will start to look messy.

For this card, I cut a part of the napkin border and glued that on first.  Then I cut out the turkey and added that.  Finally I added a tag with my sentiment on it.  Using napkins like this not only makes me feel good because I'm using up my leftover napkins, they also make a pretty card very quickly.
