Oh-So Fru-Fru from the past!

t's Evelyn here....digging in my stash for the fabulous 'fru-fru' which just might not be available any more.   I think people can make their own with iridescent or holographic acetate wrap, shredded into tiny pieces.   What I have came from Pennywise Arts, but I know it's not available there anymore.  The stamp is a new one for me..."Poppy Poem" from Penny Black. 

The technique can be found in the August/September 2007 newsletter.

very pretty, and I think the Easter grass that's available now would work well for this technique.

Has it really been that long since this technique came on the scene? I think fru fru is sold by another name at Hobby Lobby. Your card is darling.

Holly (my dear friend), and Evelyn, you are such enablers! After seeing that gorgeous card of Evelyns and reading Holly's tip for the Easter grass, I was already ordering at joann.com and thought to search for "shredded" and came up with this to add to my order:

I ordered the opal colored grass. Cannot wait to open the box and try out this technique. Thanks! xoxo
