Buttons & BowsPosted: July 23, 2011
I opened the Less is More blog this morning to see this week’s theme and found the challenge is to use ribbons and/or buttons. I don’t think I have ever used a button on a card but I have a selection of ribbon types and colours so I started thinking. When I went down to my craft table however, I saw a little blue button sitting there and decided to try and incorporate it into my design. I found a very narrow piece of ivory ribbon which I managed to get threaded and tied through the button’s holes.
So the tiny little button and ribbon set the colour scheme for the card. I cut a square mask into a post-it note and used sponging in Not quite Navy to define the square before stamping the three Pocket Silhouette stamps.
Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes, Short & Sweet
Inks: Basic Black, Old Olive, Not quite Navy
Cardstock: Flourishes Classic Ivory
Also: a button, a bow and a glue dot
