Hello how are you today?
We've been enjoying some winter sunshine here is Sydney thankfully, as we hate those dull days.
I felt like playing yesterday, Walshie was working from home so the kitchen was out of bounds to me. He says he can spread out here and enjoy the view outside! Anyway I was having a tidy up in my craft room, sorting out odd pieces of paper and such. Decided to put a few scraps together and took down my button jar. This is the card I came up with.
- Stamp GKD bug me anytime by Nina Brackett
- Inks Martha Stewart - meyer lemon, bamboo and hibiscus plus two Copic markers
- Card GKD Pure Luxury layering weight pure white, Kaiserscrapbook - garden party, pale blue , lemon and green scraps.
- Embellishments: Assorted buttons, green organza ribbon
I've started with white card then layered with pale blue. The green, lemon and dp I've punched along the right end with my SU lace border punch.
The butterfly image was stamped onto pure luxury pure white which was then cut using a Spellbinder die. I cut a second square in the green card using the scalloped die, then mounted the image.
Now the fun part, each of the buttons (once I sorted out how many I needed to fit around the square) were taped around the frame (20 in all!).
I cut an oval, again with a Spellbinders die. Stamped the sentiment towards the right hand end and attached this to the card folding the left hand side to the back.
Some ribbon knotted along the side and playtime was over!
Not a bad way to use some scraps of card and a few buttons is it.
Till next time...........
