Cards For Kids bloghop!!
You should have come to me via the Lawn Fawn Blog .
We were not required but I used one of my favorite Lawn Fawn sets, Sew Lovely.
Using white PTI cardstock I stamped the squiggly border along the bottom in Brilliance Rocket Red Gold and heat set it. I then cut 2 strips of regular yellow paper from a legal pad and added it as my main focal point. I figured with school lessons coming up it would lend itself nicely to this project. I added adhesive and began my pleating.
I then stamped my sentiment in Colorbox Harbor Blue ink and heat set it. I trimmed it out, rounded 3 out of 4 corners and edged the entire panel in black ink to make it pop.
I then stamped the buttons from the Sew Lovely Set in Rocket Red Gold, Harbor Blue and Pearlescent Yellow. I heat embossed them, trimmed them out and added them on with 3-D foam adhesive. I then added matching real buttons diagonally across from them in the lower left hand corner.
I'm so glad I was able to participate in this great cause!!
After leaving me some love please hop over to Tiffany's blog!!
