Dude Trio

It's that time again ... time for me to make a few "dude" cards. Struggle-struggle-struggle ... don't know WHY I always struggle with "dude" cards. As simple as these look, they took me a bit to put together!

I was happy that I was able to use up these big ol' buttons, though!! Just HAD to have 'em when they were on sale last fall. Up until I made these cards, I had only used ONE of them. It's always nice when you can use something you bought and make your purchase feel justified!!

Stamps: Mat Stack 3 (Papertrey), Crazy for Cupcakes (sentiment)
Paper: Soft Suede, Whisper White, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Nursery Nest DSP, Domestic Goddess DSP, Spice Cake DSP
Ink: Soft Suede
Accessories: Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Spice Cake Buttons, Linen Thread, Mat Stack 3 Die (Paper Trey), Small Oval Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon

And you KNOW that since we are coming up on the 20th of the month ... which means it is nearly time for the Control Freaks Blog Tour!! Come back and check it out!!

I think they turned out great and I really like how your focal point is a big button and die cut shape instead of an image.

You "aced" it again!! Hard to find dude cards that aren't sports and I'm desperate for dude cards at the moment. Happen to have this stamp/die set, although think i'll use my older DSP's and a little different layout. Thanks for the inspiration!!
