Today's share is a 3 in one. I took the sketch layout from Clean & Simple 134 last week.
I love Stampin' Up!s Buttons, Buttons stamp set, It is one i earned for free from Stampin' Up! a while back, just one of the many perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. Although I will be honest, I only just put the set together the day I made this card, bad me.
For this card I made my fist card very simple and it could be a great demonstrable card in a workshop.
Then I decided to dress it up a little bit by using the Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso Marvelous Markers to draw stitches on the sides of the card and on the buttons to look like thread.
But that wasn't enough I wanted to take it one step further and use actual thread and stitch the card. If you have a sewing machine you can do this the easy way, but as my little craft sewing machine decided it didn't want to work for me so I stitched them by hand.
I do love the way all of these cards turned but I am partial to the first and third cards, I love the simplicity of the first and the added touch of detail of the last.
To make this card you need:
* SU! Early Espresso, Daffodil delight, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White card stock,
* SU! Early Espresso and Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink pad, Early Espresso, Daffodil delight, Pumpkin Pie Marvelous Markers
* SU! Stamp set used is Button, Button (122026) and Live Love and Laugh for the verse (117114)
