Adding buttons for that special touch

button card close up

I set a challenge to myself today. To use some buttons on my project.

I have a guilty secret, I buy them and then hoard them. Am I the only one? Laughing

But I pushed myself and managed to use not just one, but three – I’m on a roll! Lol.

The base card is an A6 landscape of Chocolate Chip card matted with Pool Party. The lower half of a mat of So Saffron card was run through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder which had first been brayered with Chocolate Chip ink. Using Chocolate Chip ink again, the upper half was randomly stamped with the smaller stamps from the Spiced Paisley set. A Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punched from Pool Party card was adhered across the centre of the stamped and textured mat. Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon was threaded through the three buttons which were then adhered to the front of the mat with glue dots whilst the ends of the ribbon were secured on the reverse with Sticky Strip. This mat was adhered direct to the card front with Sticky Strip (for extra strength). The medium circular motif was inked with Pool Party, stamped off once and then stamped onto Very Vanilla card. Chocolate Chip ink was used to stamp the sentiment over the top of the motif which was then punched out with the 1-1/4″ Circle and adhered to the button with glue dots.

What supplies do you hoard?
