It's time for another challenge over at the Shopping Our Stash blog. This week we ask you to use Red, White & Blue on your card; or Stars & Stripes; or surprise us and mix 'em up. Red, White & Blue and Stars & Stripes don't have to be only for patriotic holidays, you know, so put on your thinking caps!
Here's the card I made for this challenge:
My Favorite Things (aka: MFT):
What, wait ... this can't possibly be all she has to say, right? Okay, let's have a show & tell. :D I documented how I did the button and raffia, so I thought I'd share that here.
First I put the button where I wanted it:
This next part was the most difficult -- feeding the twine through the holes:

i was determined to use RWB w/o the patriotic part, as well, which is how i got the cupcake, lol! but i think you're quite right that it's a GREAT, bright, eyecatching palette that doesn't need any other reason to be used!ReplyDelete
btw, i think i mentioned that i ♥LOVE♥ this card, that is a great sketch and you have totally ROCKED it!!! ♥♥♥
I like the raffia on here - and also that little banner! Precious!ReplyDelete
So glad you said how you did the raffia behind the button too.....I would have just had a mess trying to do that and this is so perfect!
So cute. I love the banner with the stars!ReplyDelete
Cool way to add the raffia element. I have to tell you that when I first started scrolling down to see the card, the top half of the raffia and button look like a bunny head. Which you totally intended,right? :-)ReplyDelete
