Button Up!

This was a fun and quick card to make, using my new button stamp from "Square Pegs" on a Kraft base and a hodgepodge of real ones from the neutrals and new Gina K Romance Assortment! I started by stamping a random border with the button image in Memento Tuxedo Black and Versamark (difficult to see in this pic but I embossed the lighter ones, great to have that realistic shine and texture!) and then adhered the real buttons to create a collage using pop dots and glue dots. Last I added sime faux stitched over the button holes with my white Inkssentials and black glaze pens, the greeting and "free" pierced some little curvy trails in between to add more whimsy. Edges of card are rubbed with Cream White to soften the look. TIP: Don't have the color buttons you want? Stamp the button image and punch out with different size circles (or even a small squre!) to create some new buttons!


I think this is just a happy, bring a smile to your face card! Have a wonderful day! :)
