I can't help but love this Basic Grey paper! It's called Lemonade, and doesn't it just make you think of summer? First up is a 5x5 in square. I cut the red square and added 1 1/2 squares of some of the paper from this collection. Then I decided to add a small element to each square.
The turquoise ribbon flower I found all made in the ribbon section of Joann's. That center button I just loved so much I HAD to include it somewhere.
After I had my red card front completed, I cut a 6x6 in sq and used my scalloped edge punch along all four sides. I trimmed up the corners with my straight scissors and added my card front. Finally I created my card base (5x5) and adhered it to the back of the scalloped layer. This was the only way I could think to get the scalloped edge all the way around.
For this card I used Basic Grey Sultry collection. I stamped my sentiment in Rose Romance before running it through my cuttlebug machine with the embossing folder.
I added coordinating buttons to the center of each flower (don't you LOVE that green one?!). These green buttons were from a 'Bag o Buttons' from Autumn Leaves.
The ribbon was from an old Chatterbox ribbon collection (olive) and worked perfectly. I might have to keep this card for myself, I love it so much! ;)
