Flowered and filed

Mother’s Day is Sunday, and I have one more card to share. If you are a procrastinating crafter in need of ideas, maybe this colorful card will inspire you.

The base of this card is made with Bazzill Basics two-tone cardstock. Sanding or filing away the raised pattern reveals the color underneath. Very fine sandpaper works for this, or a file set, if you have one. I recently bought a Basic Grey precision file set and couldn’t wait to try it out.

I used my trusty Making Memories Slice Elite to die-cut two flower shapes and a decorative tab. And I actually sewed the button onto the ribbon. I usually cheat and tie the string on the button and attach it using a glue dot. I didn’t think that would adhere well to the ribbon, though.
