Tatty Button Card

I used an 8x8 kraft card blank. I cut a piece away on the front of the blank so that you would see the inside. I used my oval x cut shape system to round the edges.Inked edges using promarkers. I then used Papermania textured card stock and rounded the corner in the same way. I cut a piece of kraft grid card to size and put it through my texture boutique using the Me To You primrose embossing folder. I inked lightly using memento desert sand to emphasise the flowers. Matted and layered onto each other. I added cream raffia and tied knots onto the length. I stuck a piece of decorative paper from the first edition summer breeze collection paper pad inside the blank. Stamped Tatty Button Sunflower onto cream card and coloured using promarkers. Stamped the image onto white card and cut out, using this as a mask I then stamped the Tatty Button Fence and coloured in. I cut to size, rounded the corners using a chomper and inked the edges. Matted and layered with textured card and kraft card. Stamped the text, then matted and layered and used 2 foam pads stuck on top of one another to make it sit higher than the image. Embellished using Candi and a heart shaped button.
Promarker colours used:
Bright orange/Magenta/Sky blue/Pastel green/Pastel Beige/Pastel blue/Honeycomb/Burnt orange/Oatmeal/Tan/Pastel pink/Ruby/Yellow/Soft green/Lime green/Forest green/Grass/Blender.
