Fancy Buttons

Hi Everyone...
WOW it's feels like forever since I sat down and created a card just for fun :) It was nice just sitting and playing.

I wanted to do something a little different this time for a background. I took two pieces of pattern paper from the Echo Park Sweet Days 6x6 paper pad and cut them down to 3-3/4" x 5". Drew a curved line across the middle and with the two pieces together I cut along the line. Once I added the zigzag sewing to connect the two sections I added a single stitch along the outside and mounted it on a 4x5-1/4" piece of white card stock.

The button card is done with Paper Trey Inks Button Boutique stamp set and card die. I also used the Buttoned Up #2 die from PTI to make the buttons. Using my Cuttlebug I cut the button die 3 x's and layered the cuts to get a chipboard look. For the finishing touch I added some bakers twine and seam binding to the card top.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and happy crafting,
