Button Craze

I'm really into flowers nowadays. They are so easy to make and really give your cards a pop! The buttons make for a great center and I went crazy at the fabric store this past week finding some nice ones. Also, I just received my order from SU! and am really excited about their new framelits. To make this I first embossed the kraft colored card using an embossing folder. I love using embossing folders. It gives your background dimension without adding color. Very subtle. I distressed all pieces before assembling to give it that aged vintage look. Also very in right now. For the lower right flower I cut a 12" x 3/4" strip of DSP and scored it every 1/4"; accordion folded and then secured it onto the card and added the button.

Well, thanks for sticking with me. I know it's been a while since I last posted. Life has been crazy busy as I'm sure you all know as well.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
