Simple Card {quick tutorial}

Quick and easy!  

Card blank
Carstock or scrapbook paper 2 patterns, plus green scrap
Kraft paper scraps
Button and string (string optional)

How to:
I use the 4" x 5 1/2" card blanks, so these measurements are for that size.  Cut your background paper to 3 1/2" x 5" and adhere to blank.

Punch a  1 1/2" flower or scalloped circle out of kraft paper.  Punch a 1 1/4"circle out of your second patterned cardstock.  Punch a 3/4" circle out of kraft paper.   

Line your flower pieces up and punch two small holes.  Put your button on top and thread string through.  Tie a knot or bow and cut your ends.

Adhere to card where ever you'd like!  I use dots for this because of the weight of the flower I feel its more secure.

Cut or punch leaves out of green paper and adhere.  

This is an anniversary card, so I stamped "happily ever after" inside the card. 

Here is another variation.  I printed a page of "thank you" on circle labels.  Matted the label with another circle punch and adhered this with a pop dot.  These were the thank you cards that I made for the mom-to-be for shower thank you cards.
