Paper Compositions is now a branch off my old Etsy shop, CornerstoneLAE. The idea is to separate my paper creations from my fabric scrap and woodburning. While any of my cards and journals currently listed at CornerstoneLAE will stay there until they expire, all new paper creations for sale can be found at http://www.etsy.com/shop/PaperCompositions

The zipper pull swings freely here, and it adds a lot to the card by not having it glued down. But as I was putting it on the card, I couldn't help but wonder if the recipient would try to actually pull on it. Working with thin metallic paper was a pain. Thicker cardstock would probably have been easier to manipulate.

As first attempt mock-ups go, I'm pretty satisfied. The leprechaun's legs swing freely as he dances his irish jig. There are still plenty of changes I would make. There's a casing to prevent his legs from swinging past his coat tails, but it is too limiting. So his coat tails will have to be wider. Those distracting four leaf clovers will have to go. His actuals proportions are bothering me a bit: he doesn't look short enough to be a leprechaun. I was planning on drawing his facial features and buttons on, but think I will stick to pure paper composition for the details.
I'll post the final product soon.
