This is for one of my great nieces who I believe is turning 17 this year. Time sure does fly and it seems to fly faster as the years go by.
Awhile back when I made those cards for the Collin's children's home. I had a few leftover pieces of preprinted images left over and these buttons were among those, they have been lying on my desk and when I went to make this card and trying to figure out what I wanted to do, I saw them and decided to figure out how to use them.
I cut the Sentiment out 3 times and layered them to give it more lift since that was my main thing on the card and the buttons just fit perfectly on the tag with them. Of course it looked to plain to me so I added the twine, my bow would not cooperate and lay right so I put a touch of glue on each tip of the bow to keep it flat to the card. Added enamel shapes to the bottom and thought that rounded out the card nicely.
Spellbinders - Font One dies
Stampin up - enamel shapes
I went to the Creating Keepsake Convention Scrapbook show yesterday and found some fun goodies to play with, not that I need more, my sweet hubby went with me and when he would see something he thought I might like I said oh I have something close to that, after saying that about 5 times I told him really I have enough stuff I really didn't need to come but he said oh you never know when you will find that neat thing you don't have :)
I hope you enjoy a wonderful weekend,
I love layered sentiments -- they give a card an extra pop of wow! Love the pretty twine bow you added - perfect touch!
a very nice card!! your husband is sweet like mine, what a sport to go with you to the convention and to point out items he thinks you would like!!!
What a fabulous card ... I am SURE it will be greatly appreciated! How awesome that the hubster went with you and how considerate of him to try and help you find that TREASURE you don't have! LOL Our big convention is the last weekend of the month but that is also granddaughter's wedding weekend so I doubt I'll make it this year (not that I need anything either! LOL)
Such a lovely card! Your niece will love it. It is great that your hubby went to the stamp show with you and helped you pick out things!
Sweet card!Have a blessed weekend!
I can't imagine my husband insisting I go to a craft convention, let alone coming with me. He's a good, supportive, understanding guy, but he definitely leaves the craft stuff up to me. Nice that your hubby enjoys your hobby! Your card today is very crisp and cute and beautifully done, Connie! It looks perfect for a teen girl, I'd say.
Beautiful card and love that paper..
Thanks for your sweet message on my dad's scrappage, he actually lived to almost 103
Your husband makes me smile, Connie. Isn't he a fabulous man. This card is so pretty. I think those sweet buttons are the stars.
This is really sweet! I love the dimension on your wish die cut, love doing that, it adds so much, yes? This is just one of those pretty, pretty creations!
So pretty! Love the pretty layered Wish and those buttons are so cool. Love the addition of the yellow and white twine. Your husband sounds like a sweetie!
A very fabulous card....your niece will love it.
Have a great day
What a sweet card! Those printed buttons are so cute!
Your husband is a keeper, Connie! So sweet that he wanted you to choose whatever you want/need. Love the WISH card! Those buttons are too sweet.
LOVE the card Connie... think its grand when we get to use up lying around things like that!!
And you're hubby is a real sweetie. God bless his kind caring heart!!
