Think Fast!

This is my first-ever submission for the Etsy-Inspired Challenge. How does it work? Each week, an Etsy store is featured. Participants go to the Etsy store, find and item or two that inspired them and create a card from the inspiration piece. I encourage you to go over there an play! This week's store is Think Fast Designs. Two of their products inspired me. One was a cute ruffled apron. The other were boutonnieres made from buttons.

Here is my card and the inspiration pieces:



I took strips of paper and created a scalloped edge with my Stampin' Up slot punch. I distressed the edges to make the paper look more like fabric and adhered them in layers. I created the embellishment with buttons and baker's twine. I basically tied the buttons together with baker's twine and left extra for the stems. I then took all the twine, twisted it and used some tape to adhere the ends. I stamped the sentiment onto the tag, and then used dimensional stickers to pop it up. It was very fun. I hope you like it! :-)
