I'm really enjoying adding buttons to my ribbon accents, it's a fun switch from the usual knot or bow. I love how simple this card is but at the same time it's loaded with lots of texture and interest. The torn cardstock strip adds a bit of texture, I just tore it by hand and curled the ends up a bit. It was super easy! The ribbon and the buttons all have their own great texture and shine to them. Extending the tree top and sentiment over the edges adds a touch of interest, as does the stamped text background. Oh, and of course the rounded corners (gotta love that corner rounder... lol).
So what are some of your favorite ways to add texture and interest to your creations?
I hope this was a nice change from all those In Bloom cards. :) Glad you stopped in for a visit, now you all have a wonderful day!
