Do you make your own paper? This card is outstanding, what a beauty. I love handmade paper. Welcome to uploading at SCS. I hope you check out our daily challenge on the homepage, there is something for everyone, great was for us to get to know each other. Any questions, either click on 'help' at the top of the page or 'forum', then scroll down a bit until you see 'start here.' I hope to keep seeing your cards pop up. Your other three in your gallery are very cool too.

Thank you for your kind words. I work with a group of young women in Zimbabwe. I taught them to make the paper and now I am experimenting with card ideas to teach them. I make all the cards I upload to Splitcoaststampers.As the women I work with have no access to die machines, cardstock and so on, I have the challenge to showing them how to make their own paper and make products with glue, scissors and imagination only.
I do have a website http://www.africanpapermakers.com and I am on instagram as well @african_papermakers.

Wow- love this beautiful card and the homemade papers! How wonderful to teach the ladies cardmaking- I always try to buy something local when I am traveling- such treasures and a way to support locals. Best of luck on your venture and hope to see you again on SCS!
