By the Book!

Of all the Stampin' Up! catalogs I've had and of all the times I've paged through them I have never once made a card from the book. Well, it was time to challenge myself. I paged through the catalog to find a card that I knew I had all the components to do it. I had the fun ""Fresh-Cuts Notes"note paper. I just punched the flower out and got out my Stampin' Up! "Fresh Cuts" set. I stamped the image using the new Rich Razzleberry ink and stamped off once. Then I stamped the image on the note card.

The "Thank You" was in the same set and I stamped that on using Old Olive.

I had the buttons so I got one out but I didn't have the white thick thread that they used in the catalog so I did have to use hemp. And it worked just fine but it was no longer exactly like the one in the catalog!!!

I taped a piece of the Rich Razzleberry card stock behind the flower on the card. Then I taped the button in place with Dimensionals. And that was it. Pretty simple and quick to do!!!

Challenge yourself now and then. Go look through the catalog and find a card you like and copy it!!! I like to copy cards now and then. It's nice to do a card that someone else did all the thinking and planning. It's great to take a break now and then from that!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
