Button Button


The flower is from the new, “early release,” Ornate Borders die set. It reminds me of a button, because of the holes, so I decided to string them together. This is as close as I’ll come to sewing on a button! They are strung on White Baker’s Twine, with the ends taped to the back.  


To expand on the button idea, I used our Button Button Embossing Folder to emboss an angled corner of the Whisper White card front. I backed this with Basic Black Cardstock, which I layered on a Thick Whisper White card base. The black really makes the colors pop, don’t you agree?


Crafting is much more fun than housework, “sew” I used the perfect sentiment from the Crafting Forever Stamp Set. It was stamped in VersaMark, sprinkled with Black Embossing Powder, set with the Heat Tool, and cut with a Stitched Shapes Die.


Stampin’ Up’s 2018-2020 In Colors of ink are retiring also. They were featured on yesterday’s, rainbow card, and you can click on the card for details.
