I decided to go with a fall theme. I chose a burnt orange color for the base and then found a stripe scrap that coordinated well. The thin strip in the middle is Core'dinations paper that was sanded to give a distressed feel. I really like this card stock. I think it's neat how sanding brings the back color forward.
The leaves were cut with PTI dies, stamped with Leaf Prints and then sprayed with Glimmer Mist. I held them in place with a mini clothes pin covered with some of the Core'dination paper and topped off with a button. I am loving those little pins. They are so fun!
I made a double button embellishment for the bottom right. The little one fit perfectly in the dip of the larger one and I tied them together with Rustic Cream Button Twine.
This was a fun challenge to play along with. I don't make many square cards but this has encouraged me to try some new shapes. Hope you all are inspired!
