And to make this card ...




You will need ...
Cream card blank
Patterned paper
Matching paper for insert
Buttons
Kraft Button Twine
Printed Sentiment
Cream Thread for stitching


1. Cut the patterned paper 2cm less than your card base, in both length and width. You want to leave a 1cm border around it on your finished card. Stick the patterned paper, centrally, to the card base, and stitch along the top and bottom edges using a freestyle straight stitch.

2. Add your buttons.

3. Cut out your sentiment, shape it gently (as shown) between your fingers, and mount it to your card. And tie a length of Kraft Button Twine around the top.


4. Add your insert, trimmed to size, to the inside of your card ...


... and your card is finished!

  2. Hi Liz
    Loving the new papers - especially the Quatrefoil - and as you say perfect for male cards.
    I also love the sentiments - I don't have many sentiment stamps - I tend to just use the PC but your sentiments are perfect for any occasion.
    Glad to hear you enjoyed the concert - did you get to do some shopping too?
    Have a fab day.

  6. Hi Liz,
    I read your post and apart from all of the oo-ing and ahh-ing at all the new releases this week and getting 'egg-cited' about your new Easter releases next week (sooo can't wait for these!), I can totally empathise with your desire to acheive this year...for me too, last year was a 'year that wasn't' as I ended up have serious spinal surgery which took out 10 months of the 12!! My to-do list now like yours is a long one, including setting up my own blog and facebook page where I can see about selling my cards...so much do to but as you say, we are now coming into the season of new beginnings and creativity and I am sure we will both make the most of it!

    Take care,
