Shine On! (A Card of Encouragement)

Recently, my son participated in an Invention Convention- and when he didn’t win a prize, I could tell he took it kinda hard. So I whipped up this little card to encourage him to “Shine On” and not get discouraged.

To make it, I cut 2 circles from Core’Dinations cardstock Gemstones Collection and mounted them at the top of the card. Then I applied a Wacky Tacky Tape star shape and sprinkled silver microbeads on top. I finished it off with a white button threaded with a little embroidery floss, held in place with a mini Glue Dot.

To create the texture at the bottom, I “stacked” three rows of patterned and solid ribbon from the Retro Blue Button & Ribbons collection and adhered it with Zip Dry. I made a text block and brackets with more cardstock and used my trusty Dymo Label Maker to create the words.  A few more coordinating buttons finished off my design.

You could also use the sentiment, "Reach High."

I really love this color scheme, and it would be lovely for either a boy or a girl…and could easily stand in for a graduation card, too! Now wouldn’t it be a lovely card to send to someone who needs a little “pick-me-up?”

To see another card using another color scheme and a flower/ladybug motif, visit my blog, CraftTestDummies.com.

Monochromatic Button Pin and Button Gift Box

Working with monochromatic color schemes is a quick and easy way to design a project.  You don’t have to worry about the colors not coordinating.  

This pin is going to be for Mother’s Day.  My mom sent me a link to the dress she is wearing and I thought the pin would be a great surprise.  If I know my mom well and I think I do, she will also save the box and re-use it.  If she does that will make me happy.

Easy Votive Candle Favor

This is a simple votive favor I made for a baby shower but it could easily be transformed into a wedding reception/shower favor by using buttons in white or in the wedding colors.

Simply glue buttons on the bottom 1/4 of a straight sided votive candle holder. Fill with small gems and place a battery operated candle inside.

Of course, you can use a real candle but most halls, churches and other public spaces won’t allow an open flame. Check with the venue where you are holding the event prior to choosing a real candle.
