Here's another card showcasing one of the new Whipper Snapper December release cling mount sets. This card is made using Everday Quilt. I must admit, I am not a quilter. In fact, I barely even know how to turn on my sewing machine! But with these two sets, I can get the same look with rubber and ink ;0)
I tried to use bold, non traditional colors on this one and mounted them on black and then on white to make them stand out even more! The sentiment, also in the set, was set against the black ribbon so that it didn't get lost with everything else going on. I added the button and faux stitching (because as I said before, I am not a quilter and barely a seamstress) to go along with the theme of this card.
Here's a trick for you: Use little slivers of white scrap cardstock instead of thread in your buttons. It's easy to thread, you can make it whatever thickness you want, and if your like me there's PLENTY of it lying around :0)
I'm enjoying the last week of Christmas vacation preparing for the new year - out with the old, in with the new!! Cleaning out closets, drawers, taking down Christmas decorations, cleaning and purging the stamp room. However, I may have to take a break and find some stamping time too ;0)
Have a wonderful end to this year.
