DCM - Little Extra - Wood or Silverware

I can’t believe that it’s been two week since I last posted.

I’ve been laid up with an acute case of very painful sinusitis which turned into a nasty chest infection and felt so rough that I’ve not been in the mood crafting in any shape of form, not even my cross stitch. I’m pleased to say that I’ve over it now though; well, apart from the cough which is still hanging around but I thought it was about time to get the ribbons and papers out again!

The Daring Cardmakers are doing another challenge in the series of Anniversary gifts that they started a couple of weeks ago and this weeks Little Extra is to make a card featuring either the traditional gift of wood or the modern gift of Silverware for the 5th Anniversary.

While I was wondering what on earth I was going to do I remembered that I had some lovely little shaped wooden buttons that I brought at Ally Pally last year and had never used so I pulled them out.

It turned out to be very simple. I covered the card blank with the patterned paper and cut the scalloped border by hand after using a stencil that came free with one of the card making magazines. I coloured the buttons with Gel pens

and also added a little bit of doodling to the borders and then finished the whole thing off with a little tag and some ribbon

Organza ribbon – from stash
Wooden buttons –from stash
Large brad – from stash

I love this card. At a quick glance, the flower looks as though it has a smiley face in the middle of it (or maybe I need new glasses!)but I love it anyway :)
