Hi everyone! I’m back with another post today to share a fun congratulations card I made for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge! I’ve actually got several other projects going on in my studio and I didn’t want to forget to share this one before the challenge ends, lol! I’ve been known to do that because of the way this old brain works! ;) Cute As A Button Digital Stamps is the sponsor for this challenge, and the challenges are always Anything Goes with an optional twist thrown in to inspire participants. This time the optional twist is Buttons (real or faux). So I used three stamped and die cut buttons that I had in my doo-dad bowl (yes, I have one of those, lol!) that I made a few weeks back for another design team project and decided at the last minute not to use them. I knew they’d come in handy! ;)
I created a standard A2 size top-folding card base from white cardstock. I had a printed digital paper pack out on my desk from the last card I posted and decided on a blue/green pattern for this card which I paired with some royal blue and emerald green linen cardstock in my stash. I layered some angled cuts which complemented the buttons very well, I thought. Super simple but very effective CAS design. ;)
I carried the angle to the inside panel with the digital paper and a strip of green linen cardstock, stamped a sentiment and layered the panel on the blue linen cardstock.
And one more peek… totally in love with this design! The optional button twist for this challenge just fell right into place!
