Time Well Spent

Once in a while I am able to combine all (if not all, then definitely most) of my favorite techniques into one project; this is just that instance.

Pattern Paper: three different patterned paper are combined in this card: I like how the square pattern offsets the roundness of the flowers; the stripe pattern could mimic a picket fence; the flower pattern could be the sky with birds.

Punches: so many were used in creating this card – all of which work together cohesively.

Sponging: adding a sponged edge to all the pieces unifies and softens the edges.

Accents: the layered buttons accent the flowers nicely and the touch of linen thread finishes them off. Additionally, utilizing dimension creates interest and depth.

There isn’t much else to say besides: I love this card!

Recipe: Time Well Spend stamp set; Cherry Cobbler, Mellow Moss, and So Saffron cardstock; Washington Apple DSP; Circle Scallop, oval Scallop, Small Oval, 1 3/8” Circle, Scallop Border, and Build a Blossom punches; Subtles, Brights, and Regals Designer Buttons; linen thread, dimensionals, mini glue dots, sponges.
