Thanks a Button...

I have to admit that I'm a little stressed out this week. There just seems to be so much to do and so little time in which to do it. So, I thought I'd relax by making a simple card. I was inspired by the fab colors over at Our Creative Corner (even by their challenge image!) and by the CAS button challenge debuting today at the Pals Paper Arts Challenge. I thought I'd try my hand at making a card that was both chic and modern. If only life were this simple!

SPILLING THE BEANS
  1. Make card from card stock.
  2. Trim card stock and adhere.
  3. Apply rub-on.
  4. Punch circles and adhere with glue.
  5. Adhere buttons with strong adhesive.
BEAN NOTES
  • Rub-Ons: Chit Chat (Stampin' Up!)
  • Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla (SU!)
  • Tools: Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers); Circle Punch (EK Success)
HAPPY BEANS
  • Accents: Buttons (Basic Grey)
By the way, I hope you join me tomorrow for my official debut on the Clear & Simple Stamps Design Team when we reveal October's Stamp of the Month...it's sure to be spookily delicious! Plus, one of my cards is the featured project on the exclusive Clear & Simple Stamps iPhone/iPad App! Check out the sneaky peeky below...

I just love the simple design of this with the punched circles. The color combo is great too. I liked it so much that I cased it and posted my card on my blog today (10/4/10). Thanks for the inspiration.
