I needed just a little "jump start" to get me making cards again. The new challenge for April in the Cuttlebug group I'm a member of is to use a button (or buttons) on your card. Perfect - just a tiny challenge. I've also been wanting to use some patterned paper on a card and make a coordinating envelope.
I stamped the flower on off-white cardstock. It's from a Gina K set. I colored directly on the stamp. For the stem and leaves I used a green Memento marker and on the flower I used a Tim Holtz black Distress marker. I stamped the flower again on the polka dotted paper and cut it out. My button is the flower center. I traced around the stem and leaves with the marker. I used my Martha Stewart scoring board to score lines around the outside. The matting piece is the reverse side of the dotted paper - from My Minds Eye. I used a Cuttlebug die for the "thanks."
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
