Button Inspiration

March 10, 2010 at 11:23 pm 1 comment

I saw Gina K.’s blog where she inspired us to use buttons. I noted on the forum post that I was given some buttons from my Baba (my grandma) many years ago and I am SLOWLY making some headway and am incorporating them in my cards, which is my new favourite thing to do. I used an older sketch from Sketches by Tamara but I can’t remember when it was posted. . The card base is Papertrey White CS and I layered it with yellowy-green CS, then some My Mind’s Eye patterned paper. I added a sentiment (Teeny Tiny Wishes from SU) and punched it with the Word Window punch, then the modern label punch. I added a couple of self-adhesive rhinestone brads to the corner of it. I added some dollar store ribbon around the card and adhered the lovely rhinestone button with silver cord. I stamped the Flourishes tulip stamp in VersaMark and colored it with a mixture of pastels. I punched it with a 1 3/8″ inch SU circle punch and layered it with a nesties scallop circle. This was a really easy card to make, but I love the way it turned out. Thanks for having a look.
