Am I in the wrong place?

Patterned paper pennants

No you are not in the wrong place; I did make this three layer card which includes patterned paper, buttons and thread!

I have pinned and admired several cards which line up strips of patterned paper to make lovely designs.
A Christmas one, a Floral one and a similar idea

Mine is a little more patchwork looking as I didn’t stick with an analogous colour scheme. The background for my card is made with the stamp Dots in Space which I inked in red, blue, green and yellow then stamped once on another panel before making the muted impression you see above. I used the same inks to sponge the edge of the pennants and the background panel. I know the sentiment really needs a cupcake to go along with it but I liked the size and shape so it got the job.  I’ll be back with more of my usual soon…

    Would make a neat Father’s Day card as it reminds me of men’s ties. Like the card and design.

    This is so different than anything I’ve seen you do. I love the color mix. When I first looked at the card before I noticed the buttons and read your post, I thought they were neckties! LOL!

    Delightful card! Nice dotted, pastel-ish bkgrd for your bright colored strips. Like the buttons, too. Sometimes change is good. As in this “case” … get it? Heehee! 🙂

    It’s fun to leave the box sometimes, isn’t it? I really like this one, and don’t feel the sentiment needs a cupcake at all. I also think this one would be fun to make again with the banners angled so they were tie-shaped for a masculine card!

    Fun & Fresh! I see ties and the buttons are like tie tacks. Love that you showed us you’re capable of stretching your comfort zone. I knew it was the right place. The inky dots on the background told me so. The patterned paper you chose is really eye catching. Well done!

  10. I am convinced you could do any style you want, Heather. Very fun and sweet card.

    Like some of the other comments, this card reminded me of ties, such a great idea for a masculine card – it is usually so hard to do anything different.
