These cards were fun to make and I was able to finally let go ( not so easy to do ) of some of my vintage buttons that I purchased in Rhode Island. I packaged the set of cards up with these crystal clear envelopes here. Each card is tucked inside one of the crystal clear envelopes then I stacked them and made the band with ribbon etc.
I started out with some white card stock and stamped the flowers with Memento ink. You can color the the flowers with markers, pencils or chalks. I used Copic makers (B000, B00, B02, BG04) Distress the edges with a light hand using broken china and faded jeans. I cut two masks out of copy paper and stamped the script background in faded jeans.
Add a little walnut to the edges of the kraft paper. If you have a machine a bit of machine stitching looks nice....faux stitching would look good as well. Can you believe that I didn't cut out anything??? Wow right??
What did you do this weekend? I coated over 80 pretzel rods with chocolate and sprinkles, crushed heath bars and a few other things. I'll share them with you later. Have a great week! Hugs, Kathy
