Welcome. Today, I want to share with you a magnetic inspirational board. I used a chipboard coaster. You know, the kind you get at some restaurants. (4" x 4")
I covered the logo on the chipboard coaster with this teal, aqua colored pattern paper. I distressed the edges with white acrylic paint. Then I started on my main piece. I used the other side of the white polka dot pattern paper, the butterfly side. I distressed the edges with more white paint, and roughed them up a bit. I added a purposefully sloppy double border stitch with my sewing machine. I then added a strip of pale pink seam binding and a narrow cream cotton eyelet trim. I machine stitched them to the paper. I adhered this piece to the paper covered coaster with foam tape.
I printed a small Bingo card, and an ephemera piece. The ephemera piece has butterflies, some washi tape, and a ticket that says, 'Happy'. Who wouldn't love that? I distressed the edges with more paint, and crinkled them. I added more foam tape to these two ephemera pieces. I tied a simple bow with gold tinsel, and layered a double bow tied with the pale pink seam binding. I added some paint and glitter to a wooden button, and tied them all together with some gold bakers twine.
I added my sentiment, or inspirational word just right of the bows. I stamped the word in VersaMark, and used antique gold embossing powder, and heat set. I also used the same heat embossing technique with a butterfly I stamped onto the ephemera piece.
And finally, I added some white paint to the seam binding bow. Viola!
