Colorful Buttons & Kraft Snowflakes
Today’s Etsy Recap focuses on two cards that have both been recently listed in my Etsy Shop & were both popular items this past weekend at my craft show!
The first card is one of my all-time favorites because it has an awesome, non-traditional color scheme and buttons! Who doesn’t love buttons?!? I borrowed the stamp set from a friend but the more I look at this card, I’m thinking that I need to invest in it!
I started with a white cardstock base and a small white rectangle houses both the sentiment and the stamped hanging ornaments – complete with colored buttons to represent the bulbs. Three rectangular blocks of patterned paper feature different patterns, including stripes, plaids and polka dots. Bright red, pinks, greens and turquoise combine in a fun & festive way!
The blocks of patterned paper are subtly inked around the edges with black ink which coordinate with the stamped sentiment and the strings hanging that hold the ornaments. I’ve still got a handful of these cards available and they are listed here.
The second card [also on my list of favorites!] begins with a chocolate brown card base and a layer of kraft cardstock in a single panel layered on top.
Die-cut out of the kraft layer is a single, ornate snowflake. The die-cut has been elevated off of the card base with pop dots and red tone-on-tone polka dotted paper shows through the openings.
Three strands of red & white baker’s twine are wrapped around the kraft panel and are tied in a small knot near the right edge. Centered on the panel near the bottom of the card is the sentiment “Merry Christmas To You And Yours” in brown ink.
The inside of this card features a layer of kraft paper so when writing your message to your recipient, they’ll be able to read it! There are still some available and you can find them here.
While the holidays are quickly approaching, I’ll continue to post holiday-related items [as well as everyday paper goodness] in my Etsy Shop. Tomorrow I’ll be back with One Stamp – Three Ways and I hope you’ll stop back to check it out.
