I made this birthday card for Susan. It is made with satin, Moroccan silk threads, Madeleine wrapper, hairnet and snaps. I found the black snaps tape in the back of a drawer. I think I was going to use it on an Issey Miyake pattern. It serves an interesting purpose here. The back of the card is also salmon-colored satin. I painted over it in creamy white acrylic paint, then stamped a birthday greeting. I remember my painting teacher likes to paint on satin because it changes its nature from shiny to matte or translucent, depending on the type of paint applied to it.
