You Bring The Blanket!


Hi everyone!

Recently Paper Pretties held it’s monthly Stampin’ in Your Jammies party over on the Paper Pretties Forum to celebrate the release of the new stamps for August. One of the challenges during the party was to make a card using BUTTONS AS THE ONLY EMBELLISHMENT….. yikes!

I decided to use the new Everyday Picnic set that was released by Paper Pretties earlier in the month. I used the Mojo96 sketch challenge from a few week’s ago. I so wanted to add ribbon to my card as that was included in the sketch …. however I resisted LOL and added the punched strip instead. It may be hard to tell in the photo but those round things in the top left corner are actually tiny black buttons.


I added the sentiment to the inside of my card layering it onto the blossom nestabilities die.


Stamps: Everyday Picnic – Paper Pretties

Paper: White; Black; Riding Hood Red & Bella Rose DP – SU;

Other: Black Ink; Blossom Nestabilities; Zigzag Border Punch; Black Buttons; Foam Tape; Copics
