Crazy About You meets Flower Pot

Here is my creation when I paired the Crazy About You stamp set & Framelit Bundle with the Flower Pot Designer Series Paper.

crazy-about-you-clubI really love how this card turned out.  It is a great way to use up different sizes of Designer Paper – you don’t need to have the same shape with equal borders around every layer.  Just pick up whatever sizes you have and layer them up – mixing the patterns and colors.  I created a bunch of variations that I used for a swap this past weekend.

happy-birthday-varietyThe die cut HAPPY is added to the skinny strip with some staples using the Stampin’ Up! stapler – don’t miss it in this week’s WEEKLY DEALS! And don’t forget to add the extra staples to your order too.

The leaves are stamped in Garden Green and then hand cut – I used 3 leaves instead of the full image.  At the base of the leaves I added a button – the ones I used were from the Sale-A-Bration pack but you could pull from various colors in our Designer Buttons in the catalog.  Or make your own using the clay and molds.  Here is a close up of the button –

button-close-upDo you know where the twine that I tied through the button comes from?  It may be a little hard to figure out.  Remember the Two-Tone Trim from the Holiday catalog – we had White & Tangerine Tango and it actually carried over into the Occasions Catalog – its’ on page 49.  I took the trim and untwisted it to separate the colors and then used about 4 or 5 strands two go through my button.  I used both the white and the tangerine tango throughout the full assortment of cards that I made.  I thought it was a fun way to use it and get solid Tangerine threads in there.  The trim also comes in Natural & Old Olive.

I hope you like this card as much as I do.  Below is the full list of supplies that I used – click on any of them to go straight to my online store.
