OWH MWT and Sketches 9 & 10

This week the Midweek Throwdown at Operation Write Home's Stars & Stamps blog is to make a Mother's Day card. Here's one using sketch 9:

I wanted a flower and I happened to have my jar of buttons sitting on my craft table. That's a lacy circles Nestie for the flower base. I used a Fiskars border punch to double edge the pink paper. There is wide white ribbon under it and some wired sheer ribbon with a touch of silver on top of it. I stamped the sentiment, from Fiskars, in Memento London Fog. All of the papers were from my stash.

Another sketch I worked on was sketch 10 and is a birthday card for a friend.

The tags are a SU punch. I used a cotton ball and some Studio G ink to distress them and a Fiskars alphabet set for the letters. I used the same method for the sentiment which is from Paper Pizazz. The flower paper is from DCWV and the background is from the Divine Swirl embossing folder. I added brads to the tags for a bit more dimension.

Hope you're having a great week,

  4. Cherie, I like how you made your button flower. The border punch with the ribbon on top adds a nice touch to your card. Your friend will enjoy receiving your BD card too.
