Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Our family did, and I can't believe it has already come and gone. Today I wanted to share a layout I created for A Flair For Buttons featuring two flair from the Here & Now and Love Gold Flair sets.
I created another Christmas layout using the My Mind's Eye Comfort & Joy collection. I had some leftover die cut Christmas trees from a Hip Kit Club cut file, and I arranged them on some white cardstock. I covered a lot of the area with clear gesso and then used a few different shades of Shimmerz sprays to add the green watercolor. I used some very light blue Shimmerz to add a faint sky behind the trees and then machine stitched through the trees with gold thread. I embellished with sequins, chipboard, a brad and some die cuts.
I love using plastic packaging over cardstock die cuts. Some of the color goes onto the die cuts and some of it goes onto the background. I love the messy look! Here you can see the fun texture from the stitching. I used some white sequins and some tiny gold stars from SpiegelMom Scraps.
I love this flair button. Even though it isn't part of a Christmas set, it goes with this page perfectly. I love the black and kraft mix, and I layered it right on top of this chipboard piece with some gold thread nestled under it.
The second flair button I used isn't from a Christmas set, either. This one is so cute, and gold always goes with Christmas, right? :) I created a fun little cluster here with a chipboard button and a brad. I added some foam adhesive under this long banner piece. I cut "christmas" on my Cameo in the Shoreline font. I love the white-on-white look here.
I added some tangled thread for added color and texture as well as a cute chipboard tree right on top of the photos.
Here's one final close-up of the title area. I love this font! All that pretty gold is Heidi Swapp Color Shine. It's so pretty mixed in with the green Shimmerz.
Here are the sets of flair I used:
