Kindness Flourishes


I love doing monochromatic cards, they always seem so classy! This one is all white and Baja Breeze (SU). I tried a new technique that I found on Nichole Heady's blog using polyshrink to make matching *buttons* for projects. I first used the background stamp on the polyshrink, and it turned out to be really fun! Then I layered it and tied the ribbon through it. The butterfly and sentiment are popped up and I added a few tiny rhinestones for a little sparkle. Then I stitched the background onto another layer of solid Baja Breeze cardstock to frame everything. What a great idea to make buttons...no more trying to find the perfect color, just stamp, punch and bake!
