The talented Nance Leedy is our hostess for The Paper Players this week, and she is challenging us to design a Clean and Simple card Using Buttons. To be truthful, this was not my first design. I started with Stampin' Up!'s Brights color palette and tons of buttons. But it just was not me. So I started over and truly tried to stay faithful to a clean and elegant design using the new catalog preview set, Everything Eleanor. Enjoy today's quick and easy card!
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips: Clean and ElegantThe card measures 4-1/4" wide by 5-1/2" long.
- Buttons! Buttons take on a different twist when topped with a Basic Pearl. The resulting look adds a touch of elegance! In addition, the Pearls coordinate with the centers of the Rose Red Boho Blossoms, thus pulling the design together.
- Bows! Add a touch of class instantly with a beautiful bow. Seam Binding is a perfect choice for enhancing a softly feminine look.
- Butterflies! A Pretty in Pink Beautiful Wings Embosslit Butterfly accentuates the Pretty in Pink buttons, adding just the right amount of a lighter pink hue to balance the card.
Since many of you may not have the Everything Eleanor Flourish which I used, why not try either of these sets, both of which have gorgeous flourishes: Baroque Motifs, Wedding Sweet.
