Home Grown | A Flair For Buttons

I’m up on the A Flair For Buttons blog today with a fun birthday card. I was going through my Studio Calico card kit paper pads and found a fun combo of patterned papers to work with. I immediately loved the woodgrain paper with red text in combination with the brown background paper. The green patterned paper added a fun pop of color to the combo.  I knew I had a fun green flair from the Farmer Market 1 set that would perfectly match with those papers. So I got to work.

To break up the brown background and give the card a bit more interest, I stamped some sentiments from this months’ Studio Calico card kit onto it with Frost White pigment ink. A couple of banners of patterned papers were sewn overtop. To add some dimension to the card, I only sew across the middle of the banners, so they could stand up a bit. I added the embellishments and the sentiment.

All in all, this turned out to be a card with a rather male touch, and with a fun twist because of the Farmer Market flair. I loved how the ‘fresh’ stamp on the background added to the ‘home grown’ touch of the flair.
