Hero Arts' Greeting Definitions intrigued me. What can you do with a block of text on a card? Yesterday's card showed how you can create a word frame around the text block, and today's two cards offer up some options for embellishing.
First up, a vellum flower and fun button!
The black and white simplicity here makes me sooooo happy. And that fab button was in the stash of stuff Audrie gave me for Christmas. Woo-hoo!
Next, butterflies and bling...these sort of work pretty much everywhere.
The card stock I used for the butterflies is shimmery and so very lovely. If you click on the photo, you should see a larger image and can pick up the shimmer on the large butterfly. I positioned the large one to draw attention to the word happy, and then the three butterflies form a scalene triangle.
Aren't you impressed? I used isosceles the other day and scalene today. A scalene triangle has no equal sides and in this design provides a pleasingly organic contrast to all the regular parallel lines of the text block.
Didn't know stamping could be so geeky, did you?
Have a wonderful weekend. I sure am. My hubby is back from ten days on the other side of the world. Of course, he's crashed from jet lag, but still. We're glad he's home!
