I could have. But, it looked so awesome just like this, that it felt right to leave it be. I love the look, particularly on this kraft card stock!


Brought in the color with the little strip of fabric, and some Washi tape and BAM!  DONE!

At first, I was kinda peeved that the button I fished outta' the bag only had 3 holes.  *curses* And then I realized when I threaded it, because, of course, I do not believe in ever letting one's buttons run nekked, it looked like I'd stitched a little heart in the center.  And, I was peeved no more. Carry On *chortle*

I'm totally diggin' this "neutral with just a snippet of color" look.  I could do more of this.  Yes.  I could.

BTW, someone asked how I secured the fabric to the card front.  There are a number of ways you could do this, including staples (yeah, not everyone's a fan of staples, but depending on how it's done, it can look cool.) running it through a Xyron machine with an adhesive cartridge, fusing it on (ironing? egaaaadzzz, too much work for me!), or just a dry adhesive runner.  I used a dry adhesive runner (Tombow Permanent Monoadhesive, to be precise) because it was within reach . . . Seriously, if I hafta get up off my stool to do it . . . I prolly ain't a'gonna do it. LOL!
