Clear It Out Challenge–Button Up

Time again for another Clear It Out Challenge.  This week’s theme is “Button Up” and the stash to be used is, of course, buttons.  

I mentioned earlier that my nephew and his girlfriend will be having a baby at the end of May.  Since we are having a baby shower this coming Sunday, I decided to kill two birds with one stone when creating my card for the shower.  I think it turned out as cute as a button … pun intended, lol.  Since we know it’s a girl, pink and white were my main colors of choice. 

The cute little baby stamp was created by Digi Darla who is one of the sponsors for this Challenge.  She’s offering 5 digital images of your choice to the winner of this challenge.  Our second sponsor is QKR Stampede who is also offering 5 free digital images of the winner’s choice.






I used last Friday’s featured freebie as the perfect sentiment for this card.  I colored in the little heart with some pink to make it pop.  If you look closely, you can see that I scored the white card stock behind the sentiment with my scor-pal for an added touch of texture.






SAM_0686_apieceofheartblogI used my copics to color in the sweet little baby.  The following colors were used:

  • Hair: E11/E37
  • Skin:  E000/E00/E13
  • Sleeper:  R81/R83/R85
  • Bunny & Bow:  RV13
  • Cloud: W00 (hard to see in this pic but it’s there.)




I added a pink frilly ribbon and attached a safety pin brad to it.




Pink buttons were added to all four corners of the card in keeping with this week’s theme.   Here’s a better look at the embossed lines made with the scor-pal.




To finish off the card I prettied up the inside with some matching cardstock, 3 buttons and some homemade baker’s twine tied on the button in the middle.  (Click here to see pictures of the baker’s twine that I’ve made using this tutorial.)
