A {Cute as a Button} Card...

Thursday, April 19, 2012


I've seen so many ladies on the CSS DT making cards like this.  I just had to try my hand at it too.  All those buttons are a little tedious since they are each threaded with a sliver of gray card stock.  The whole time I was doing it, I kept hoping it would be worth all the trouble.  I'll let you be the judge.  I'm just not a person that can put a "naked" button on my card, it looks great on everyone else's cards, but looks half-assed when I try to do it.  KWIM?

I had a lot of fun with my scoring board on this one.  I think the diagonal lines look classy.  That little stamp that is replacing a button says "too cute".  I forgot to take a closer pic.
The sentiment panel is a label stamp, stamped in white and then cut out with scissors.  I stamped the sentiment and then attached it under the button panel. I like the little look of whimsy, which is so not like me, LOL.

I'm subbing today in my son's 1st grade classroom.  He is really excited about it.  Hoping for a smooth day all around!

Have a great day!
