When I saw that this week’s sketch for CAS(E) This Sketch featured buttons, I couldn’t help but to take the challenge literally by adding buttons to my card. I know, I know – the buttons on the sketch are a guide to help us create something fun. I have a new set of dies with buttons, though, so onto my card they went! Here’s my card, a sweet way to congratulate someone who’s welcoming a new baby:
And here’s the banner for the challenge that inspired my card:
- Dies from Two New Bundles. My simple card features dies from two new bundles – and you’re going to want these. While It Starts with Art and the coordinating Arts & Crafts Dies are not specifically designed for a baby card, these sweet buttons translate beautifully when the right colors are chosen. I had fun cutting these buttons and arranging them on the card. Here’s a look at the It Starts with Art Bundle:My sentiment and buttons are glued to one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies, part of the must-have Free as a Bird Bundle. These dies are super-versatile with a great shape and wonderful texture. Here’s a look at the Free as a Bird Bundle:
- Pillowy Softness. As I was reaching for my trusty friend, the Subtle Embossing Folder, to add a textured backdrop for my card, I gave some of my other embossing folders another look. That’s when I realized the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder would be a perfect foundation for this sentiment and these baby buttons. Such softness in this folder! Here’s a closer look at these buttons and the texture from this embossing folder:
- Where are All the Embossing Folders? If you’ve tried to place an order since the new catalog went live, you may have noticed that some embossing folders that are in the catalog are not in the online store.
