Paper Players have a fun one this week and I couldn't wait to play along. Nance's challenge was to create a CAS ("clean and simple") card using buttons.
Now, I have to confess I was a bit stymied at first--I didn't want to just throw something on the paper and simply glue buttons on...that would NEVER work. I also wanted to challenge myself not to use my go-to "Button Buddies". Since I have a friend's birthday coming up soon, I decided I needed to make a birthday card, and then, since she's my friend, my mind jumped to my "Season of Friendship" stamp set. Perfect!
Then, I had to figure out the buttons. I knew I didn't have enough to do all one color, and since I have a bit of a Roy G Biv "thing" (for lack of a better word, more like an OCD), I pulled out my Brights buttons and got to work.
I wanted to put the sentiment on the front, but didn't want to clutter up the image by stamping over it. I was intrigued by Nance's use of vellum for her sentiment on her button card and decided to give it a go. It was perfect!
I added a bit of scoring behind the tree on the card base and that was it--card finished!
Now, let's just hope Dani loves it as much as I. :o)
This card uses:
*Stamp Sets: "Season of Friendship", "Curly Cute"
*Inks: Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip, Early Espresso, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry
*Paper: Whisper White
*Accessories: Assorted Brights buttons
