There are days where I sit around and think of all the fabulous people in my life and I realize I am a pretty blessed girl. So in November rather than posting 30 Days of Thankfulness like I have in the past, I am going to send a few cards. I am going to PURPOSELY create AND send cards to some friends and thank them for their friendship. Today's card, though simple looking, took way more time than I had intended!
As you can see I knew what I wanted to make, I had the idea in my mind...and then along the way the vision shifted. I had wanted a line of rainbow colored buttons, with the sentiment above and the ribbon below. So I stamped the sentiment panel and adhered it to the front of the card using Ad Tech's Glue Dot Runner. Moving on to sticking on my ribbon and buttons....simple, RIGHT? Nooooo, I had to go and get my ribbon all ruffly with the glue gun, which meant my buttons had to be adjusted, which meant I downsized to three....welllllllll - take a look at the first photo...when I went down to the three buttons I then had to search and search for three buttons with just two holes a piece and couldn't find them. So I searched for three with four holes...are you seeing my OCD kick in? Yeah well I finally opted on the three different - TOTALLY DIFFERENT - buttons.... But I have to admit - I like the final project!
I think this is simple, yet striking. I like that it has both balance, and contrast. :) And once I settled on the buttons, really the hot gluing the ribbon down and the hot gluing the buttons in place took all of two minutes. And seriously, who doesn't love hot gluing with a PAISLEY GLUE GUN??? I hope you enjoy!
