I fell in love with the "brother sentiment." It fits my brother so well that I decided to make this card for his Birthday in July. I know my SIL reads the blog so Pati, don't show Mike!
I cased the idea from a card on Pinterest (posted to my Club Scrap Board). I used the text weight DP that had the fabric look to it. I wanted more of a blue jean color than the khaki color on it so I inked it first with Faded Jeans Distress Ink, then Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. I stamped the seam, twice so it was long enough, on a separate piece of paper with Chipped Sapphire, cut it out and glued it to the DP. Then went over it with Brushed Cordouroy Distress ink for the dirty jean look. I stamped the leather patch with Brushed Cordouroy onto the khaki/craft cardstock and then the sentiment with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. With four mini brads in the corners this looks almost real. The Ribbon is from the Club Scrap Embellishment Kit. I stamped the buttons with Versamark Ink and embossed them with Zing Bronze EP. I punched them out with a 1/2 inch punch and mounted them on 3 layers of cardstock to give them some dimension. Here's a detail picture of the buttons.
