ATC Birthday Card

Hi! I made this ATC (Artist Trading Card) to participate in Verve's July Project Parade Challenge. I made the torn paper rose the same way as in my last post. The leaves are also shown in the video I linked last time. This time I used a button for the center, and followed a tip I have seen on multiple blogs to 'thread' the button with a thin strip of paper. The white background is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. Happy was created with a rub-on sentiment and Birthday was created with a Tape Writer.

This is the card I made from the ATC. I gave it to my mom for her birthday. She loves purple and she loved this card. The rest of the card was pretty simple to make. I used some elegant Chatterbox paper as a background with the corners punched with the Ticket corner punch. To make the edge of the patterned paper stand out, I applied some Chestnut chalk ink direct-to-paper. I added some more paper-threaded buttons to connect with the details of the ATC, and finished off the card with tiny stick-on rhinestones by Me and My Big Ideas.
Perfect Plum, Garden Green, and GP white cardstock, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, Foofala buttons, organdy ribbon, Joann's brand ribbon buckle, Crate rub-on, tape writer, Chatterbox patterned paper, Colorbox Chestnut chalk ink, Me and My Big Ideas rhinestone stickers.
