OCC Challenge - Holiday Cards

Saturday, December 12, 2009

Welcome to another Saturday challenge from Our Creative Corner. This week, Jenny Gropp challenged us to make a holiday card (any holiday you want). I've seen a lot of cards lately using buttons as ornaments and thought I would try it out for myself. I love the end result, but I would not want to make 10 (or more) of these. There's a lot of intricate work involved like tying those little bows, measuring out the spacing, and threading the buttons. I cheated and glued my bows into place. So much easier that way with the same effect.
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and can squeeze in some crafty time. Head on over to Our Creative Corner and check out all the holiday cards from the design team. I hope you can play along with us!

I LOVE your card Dana. It is so cute, yet simple. I am really starting to love the Kraft card stock and it looks terrific with the bright colors and the sentiment stamped in white. Great job on this week's challenge!

Dana, this is adorable! I love the button ornaments. I know what you mean about the tying, though! It was definitely worth the effort for this card.
