On the Tenth Day of Christmas my True Love said to me please use 10 buttons.
Ok. I can do this. Easy Peasy. A few weeks back I decided that I should be using my Scor-Pal for more than just scoring the centre line down the cardstock to make a card base. I had seen a book recommended on another blog called Score, Fold,Create! The ultimate guide to crafting with Scor-Pal so I bought myself another wee Christmas prezzie. (Expect to see a lot more projects as I work through the book). My design below is not from the book though, just something that popped into my head to use the 10 buttons to their advantage.
Do I ever make things easy for myself ! Instead of creating the sentiment wizardry first in word I drew the door in pencil on the reverse side of the card and then spent ages getting the wording in just the right place to not only print off above and below the door but also be centralised. Eek. Don't try this one at home!
The trick is to spuddle with computer paper first and then hold over your cardstock until you get the positioning right and then and only then put your card stock through the printer. Finally using the pencil marks as a guide I used my Scor-Pal to creat the door.
The buttons have been in my stash for ages (at least well over a year) and the door knob is the centre that gets punched out when you use a flower die (you don't throw those bits away do you? Shame on you!) coloured with a red promarker to match the bow.
