As simple as this card is, so is it beautiful. It's such a sweet looking card. I saw it on one of Terri's display boards and I had to take a photo of it because I wanted to make it. As I was looking in my phone for the photo I saw that I had taken a photo of this card at the last event! Hmmm, that must have meant that I really liked it (and still like it). In fact I liked it SO much that I just had to make one.
My red polka dot background paper is a little different. The one on the display had smaller dots. Mine is from the new polka dot decorative papers. And my ribbon is different. I'm going to have to make a note to myself to order some current ribbons. Though I don't think it matters to those who copy cards. We tend to use what we have on hand or what is current. So you just substitute! Whatever works, right?
This was a very fun card to make. I used markers to color in the image, then I embossed it with the oval embossing folder. I have not used those two little folders much and I need to start. I need to start using a lot of my stuff more!!!
You can't see it in this photo but the front panel was set in place using Dimensionals. I like how the original artist of this card used the pretty red button for a flower. I LOVE those little buttons. Once again, it's an item in my workroom that I need to start using more of. I have more retired buttons, brads, eyelets, etc. than I care to mention. I use to use them sparingly and when you do that you end up with retired products, LOTS of them! Use the stuff you have, don't hoard it! LOL
This was a very fun card and not to mention simple and quick too. It can be used for SO many occasions too!
Thank you SO much for visiting today,
