First of all, have you SEEN the price of a store bought card these days? Especially one with anything dimensional, and forget about a card with something metal on it!!
That just heightens the joy of making a card like this with a piece of an old bracelet I used to wear in college, and a little metal button that fell off an old outfit of one of my kiddos. (Don't worry, I won't have trouble sending this for nostalgia's sake- I have several more pieces from that same bracelet just like this and GOBS of buttons laying around!)
I also felt frugal using this, my LAST piece of going gray in my stash (well, of usable size anyway)! I SO wish I could buy an entire pack of Going Gray. Anyone hate that color and want to trade a few pieces for anything?
Anyway, back to the card. I looked at this bracelet piece for a minute then the word "Boho" popped into my mind. I haven't used this set Boho Backgrounds in a while, so pulled it out (and NO, it is not retired). The Riding Hood Red Top Note I had cut for another project and it didn't get used so it was from my scrap stash also. I worked my keister off on this card trying to get it just right and I gotta say, now that I see it in photo form I like it much better. I think I had just looked at it for too long!
Anyway, stop by again for more tricks for stretching your stash!
