I checked out The Paper Players sketch this week (PP65) and decided it would be perfect for a Spice Cake Fabric Flower I made when I was playing around last week prepping for a class.
Here is my card, using some of my favorite colors this fall!
I cut a large scallop circle with the Big Shot, then gathered the fabric in the center and stitched a Spice Cake Designer Button in the center with White Bakers Twine. I layered it with Stampin' Dimensionals on a Very Vanilla 3" circle cut with the Big Shot. The base of the card is Pool Party with a layer of Soft Suede over it. I added three different patterns of the Spice Cake Designer Paper on top…what a great way to use up those scraps! I decided my flower needed some leaves, so added two More Mustard and Early Espresso leaves stamped from Gently Falling (LOVE IT!) along the side. The greeting, Thanks, is from Kind Thanks Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! and punched with the Large Oval Punch.
Now, you'd definitely need to send this in a padded envelope, or give it in person…it is quite bulky with the button on there, but I really like how it turned out and my mom's birthday is coming up soon! I know she'll like it!
