This combo is fun to work with and lends itself to a bright and colorful birthday card. The stamp set is from our Level 1 Hostess Set "Birthday Bakery.'
I used 3 coordinating stamp sets from the Occasions Mini Catalog --
'Button, Button,' 'Pattern Pieces' and 'Sew Suite.'
To make the pattern pieces actually look like real pattern pieces, I sponged (using a circular motion) River Rock and Crumb Cake inks onto vellum CS and then, after heat setting it, I stamped the image with Early Espresso ink and heat set again.
The tape measure was just rumpled up and pushed together onto a line of Sticky Strip, to give it dimension.
I added real buttons on top of the stamped buttons. This was really a fun card to make and I enjoyed using a combo I might not have tried if I hadn't been playing with the Color Coach.
