I chose Very Vanilla textured card stock for my base and I love the subtle contrast between that and the smooth card stock I used to make the tag-like focal panel. I scored that to make areas for the buttons to sit in, then matted it onto one of my favourite papers from the Springtime Vintage designer paper range.
My starting point for the card was my tub of Itty Bitty Buttons. They are just gorgeous and I've been meaning to use these tiny transparent heart-shaped ones for a wedding or engagement card for a while. I cut hearts out of another Springtime Vintage paper and stuck the buttons to them and I'm really pleased with the effect.
Ribbon at the moment means seam binding to me - I am totally in love with it and this Baja Breeze colourway is one of my favourites! Seam binding ties into bows so beautifully and sits quite flat too which is good for posting.
Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Perfect Punches for the sentiment
Ink: Not Quite Navy marker
Card stock: Very Vanilla smooth and textured
Other: Springtime Vintage designer paper, Baja Breeze seam binding, corner rounder, Itty Bitty Buttons
Well it's the first day of the holidays and my poor youngest son is a little under the weather. He's a bit listless and tired so I've arranged him neatly on the sofa with the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series of books and from the giggles coming from his direction, I'm assuming he's enjoying them. My older son is out playing tennis and will no doubt return when his tummy tells him to, and my daughter is busy planning a whole new wardrobe! We could wish for a bit more sunshine but hey ho!
Hope you're having a great weekend. I shall be popping over to see what magic you've worked with buttons and ribbons shortly! See you soon,
