I decided to dust off a couple retired products – we all have them and we all need to use them more! A couple years ago, there was a beautiful card kit called Watercolor Wishes. I just love the stamp set and knew the “You’re Amazing” sentiment was the perfect size for the 1″ slot I created. This layout is super easy – just cut your top layer piece 1″ shorter than a standard layer. Then, put it in the trimmer at whatever angle suits you and give it a cut. Glue it down with the end borders even and…TADA! A quick, easy way to add interest to your card! Isn’t this Designer Series Paper just adorable? It’s only available for a couple more days – free with a $50 minimum purchase – during Sale-a-Bration!
The other dusty items on these cards are the Brights Collection Buttons. OMGoodness…I have no idea how old they must be! Anyone care to guess? I topped the buttons with some Whisper White Baker’s Twine tied in a triple bow. I first made a standard bow, but the twine was a bit too small for the scale of the buttons.
