PPA62-All Buttoned Up

It’s been a while since I have blogged!  Shame on me but I also do gourd crafting and it’s a crazy time of year here at my home 🙂

For this week’s Pals Paper Arts project I decided to use my favorite Crumb Cake card stock.  I truly enjoy the rustic feel and look of this color and of course it works perfectly with the fall season.  I hope you enjoy my set of Thank You cards.  I used a fun scoring technique on the front and I think it added a nice elegant touch to a simple design.

I made a set of 4 mini note cards measuring 3″ x 6″ (scored and folded @ 3″).  I used the heart image from the Stampin’ Up! clear mount stamp set titled Paisley Prints.  I used the smaller heart image from the same set for a touch on the Square Whisper White Mini Envelopes too!

The heart-shaped clear button is from the Bitty Buttons Stampin’ Up! set and threaded a thin piece of  Crumb Cake card stock through the holes.  To secure it to the front of the note card I just added a mini glue dot.

The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink from the Sweetheart stamp set.   The heart images  have Really Rust and Chocolate Chip Classic Ink.  It’s a fun way to take an image that really reminds you of Valentine’s day or love themed projects and make it a fall theme.  I hope you will give them a try!

Hopefully I won’t have such a long lull between my posts next time but just in case here is a sample of the gourds I make 🙂
