Another card for today's button challenge. Kraft is background for picture.
Sometimes less is more and on this card, one perfectly placed button is all it needed! :)
I saw this card on the cover of a craft magazine, I think it was two yrs ago this coming spring. (Sorry, I don't have "credit" for it, only kept the cover pic.) It made my heart sing! I knew I didn't have the stamps or some of the other "ingredients" but I was determined to closely case it. I did buy the wonderful Cosmo Cricket paper but was intimidated by all the layers. I have "sat on it" all this time. Today, after having made lots of cards w/layers, the sketch didn't look so intimidating to me and I gave it a try. Took me over two hrs BUT it was worth it cause I LOVE it!
I had the CC paper but no little lamb stamp. I cut the little lamb from my Quickutz die. It consists of eight (8) pieces ... definitely requires a Quickstik to pick up and place the tinies! The body and head "wool" pieces were cut from a piece of cardstock that I textured with a mini swirls Quickutz metal embosser (can't remember the actual name of these fun little 2x2 embossing thingies to save my life!) and distressed w/Ranger di. The white mouth is done with a Signo gel pen, likewise is the faux stitching. Martha Stewart punch used to cut the lacey border. One misc. BUTTON w/PTI twine is all this card needed!
THANKS for looking! :)
