This week one of my Krafty Kat friends is having a birthday, so I pulled out my Papertrey Ink Studio Style set and my new October Afternoon Thrift Shop papers and whipped up this little gem. The color scheme is from last week's Color Throwdown #92. The challenge colors were Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Old Olive and Kraft. I had originally intended to use a Kraft card base, then completely forgot it was one of the colors and used Old Olive. Hopefully the lid on the button jar will count! It was colored with a gold Spica glitter pen.
I stamped the button jar and ribbon spool images and cut them out, then colored them each with Copic markers. I added a layer of Glossy Accents to the button jar to make it look like glass.
When I adhered the main image panel to the card, I realized that I had placed it higher up than I had intended, which left more of the yellow panel exposed than I wanted, so that's how the little button treatment in the bottom right corner was born!
I used two of the sentiments from the set on the inside, along with a few scraps leftover from the front.
For the envelope, I used the leftover negative spaces from the layers behind the main image on the front of the card and added some self-adhesive rhinestones to each of the corners. With all the scraps I used, I probably should have signed the card to the Crafty Girl from the Thrifty Girl!
Happy Birthday, Sue! Hope it's a good one!!
Thanks for stopping by!
