Variations on a Theme

Here are a couple of cards I made while I was offline. The "Just My Style" card was a thank you to a very kind couple who gifted me with a nice outfit for Mass. The "little boy" card (I made three of these; only the buttons were different shapes) was for a few friends who all had boys born recently.

The card bases are white and they stand as tents -- the fold is at the top rather than at the side. Both cards are standard size. The sentiment, small image in the top right, and the main image are all popped up on STAMPIN' UP!'s dimensionals, with the main image mounted on a colored square first. The "threads" in the buttons are slivers of coordinating card stock slipped through the holes and tied, and then the buttons are mounted using sticky dots. I ran the Kraft paper background through my Big Shot to get the raised dots all over it.

I like this card sketch very much. Took me a while to think it up, but I really think it will work with a lot of different occasions and images so it's worth the time spent! :)
