Bright Happy Happy Birthday...TO CARD PATTERNS!

Welcome welcome!  I am so glad you stopped by to celebrate Card Patterns second birthday with me!  Our wonderful sponsor today is the PaperWorks Co.  Be sure to comment here to win their awesome prize! Now onto my card.  This sketch is perfect for any style!  I chose to go clean & graphic.


Started with a white card base, die cut three black circles and three white circles.  Stamped an argyle pattern in different colors on each white circle, adhered to the black circles and attached them to my card base.


Threaded coordinating buttons with black embroidery floss and adhered them onto the die cut circles.


Lastly, stamped my sentiment on white, cut out and popped up with foam.

Here is the sketch:


I hope you play along with us this week at Card Patterns, be sure to get all of the hop details here!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Lindsay

  12. I like that you didn't match the colors of the buttons to the colors of the circles..and if it weren't for reading through your tutorial, I would have thought the circles were just made of patterned paper- not stamps! Very cool :)
