I enjoy making 6″ x 4″ cards because it uses up a full sheet of 12″ x 12″ card stock and I don’t have any odd left-overs to save for years. Here’s a card I made with some algae green DCWV cardstock and some cute paper I bought at JoAnn Fabric & Crafts. I love how the round flowers lent themselves to primary colored buttons! I attached them with glue dots and although I like the look of a stitched button, I took a shortcut and skipped it on this card. I used two stamps for my card – the cute cakes and sentiment below are from a Stampin’ Up! stamp. I colored the image with Copic markers, a metallic gold pen, swiped the edges with an ink pad, embossed “Happy Birthday” and used Liquid Applique for the frosting on the cakes. 🙂
Here is a close-up of the fun, dimensional and puffy Liquid Applique.
I buy buttons in bulk in the SEWING section of craft stores, where they are more affordable.
