I just had to pull out the Sweet Stitches stuff one last time before it retires. This card was made for the VSN "wood" challenge. I've used my wooden sheets quite a bit since they came out, stamping on them, die-cutting them, watercoloring on them, embossing on them, but the one thing I hadn't tried was adding rub-ons on them. I am glad to report it works like a charm!
The idea for this card came to me this morning when I woke up and so putting the whole thing together was really fast because I had a really clear idea of what I wanted the card to look like. I wanted to add rickrack round the circles and remembered we have a rickrack border on the Tasteful Trims die so this is what I used to die-cut the patterned paper. I ran the paper rickrack through the crimper to make it more pliable and be able to follow the circle shape when adding it to the card.
The measuring tape on which I added my sentiment is the border of one of the patterned papers from the Sweet Stitches pack. I first planned on cutting the end banner-style, but then I thought I could fold a circle in half and add a brad to mimick the end of a measuring tape instead. I really like how this detail turned out! At the other end of the sentiment strip, I layered a fabric brad on a Big Designer button and glued it in the centre of the second circle, over the sentiment strip.
