The latest Card Sketch (#4) went up last Saturday over at www.twistedsketches.com . The twist for this week’s card was BUTTONS….any how, or any way. I love buttons….I have hundreds of buttons….I use buttons all of the time! So I wanted to do something a little less obvious than just adding “buttons.”
So I pulled out my fabulous Martha Stewart embossing button punch and used it to make buttons….cut them in half…and added them as a scalloped border to the bottom of the card. I then stitched them on for a little extra dimension, texture, and detail.
This card was almost entirely made from gorgeous file folders that I found at the Dollar Tree. They had 3 different floral designs…all packaged in 3 files per pack…and each package for only a dollar. I cut the folder so that the scored edge was already made for the card…super easy.
I then used one of my small CTMH files to file the edges.
