First is a flower pick made with the set Flopsey's Flowers (click on the photo for a closer view). I had picked up these mini roses at the grocery, and I thought it would be fun to turn them into a thank you gift -- perfect for a teacher or other special person! To make the pick, I sandwiched a bamboo skewer between two scalloped ovals, then I layered more ovals on top. I stamped, colored, and cut out Flopsey and mounted him on dimensionals. I stamped, colored and cut out a second set of flowers and mounted them over the first, and I added some shimmer to the flowers with Marigold Shimmerz. To finish it off, I punched two holes on the bottom and tied the ribbon through.
This card was made with the set Cuddle Up Carter. It’s MFT's newest charity set, with $2.00 from every set sold over the next six months going to benefit kids with Cerebral Palsy (like Carole’s son, Carter) via the non-profit Euro-Peds clinic in Pontiac, Michigan.
This is a fun set to paper piece, and I did plenty of it here! I colored the rest of the image with Copics, and I sponged around the image with So Saffron ink. I backed the button with a 1" cardstock circle.
