Always Be Strong

Hey everyone! Today’s card is an entry for the 10 Minute Craft Dash over at Paulina’s blog – Pretty Pink Posh.

Normally there is a color palette to follow, but this time the card needed to incorporate buttons in some way. So here is my card —

Always Be Strong

 

It took me 8 minutes and 37 seconds to finish this card.

I started this card with some Natural card stock from Neenah cut to a landscape standard size card. I cut out the heart image from a 12×12 sheet from ColorBok’s Sweet Memories collection. I used some maroon ribbon and attached it to the hearts. I also accented each heart with buttons. I attached the hearts to look like they were hanging from somewhere.

For the sentiment, I used the Be set from Simon Says Stamp. For that set, you can mix and match sentiments and I picked “Always Be Strong”. I stamped the first and last line of the sentiment with some Rich Cocoa ink and for the “be” part, I used Rose Bud both from Memento.

To finish the card, I embellished with some matching sequins for added interest.

SUPPLY LIST:
1. Natural cardstock from Neenah
2. 12×12 sheet from ColorBok’s Sweet Memories collection.
3. buttons and ribbon from Walmart

That’s it for today. Thanks for reading.
