Here is the truth about me and buttons; I don’t use them on cards and I don’t own any either, well except for these mini ones which I had once used in this card. However, afew days ago as I was looking for a wooden sword in my brother-in-laws’s room (my daughter wanted to play sword fight with me) I found a box of buttons. My mother-in-law is into sewing and I figured it was some of her collection from many years back. I was fascinated as there were some interesting looking buttons. As I was sorting them, I noticed some pretty pastel colored buttons. They reminded me of the Tuesday Trigger photo, and I decided that I should use these buttons somehow in a card.
Back in my craft area I started playing around with the buttons. First I tried to make flowers then arranged them in geometric patterns. It seemed quite a leap to go from no buttons at all to lots of buttons in one card! Then I though I should pair them with a stamp and maybe try to feel some stamped areas with buttons. This floral Hero Arts stamp immediately came to mind. From there it was just a matter of selecting the card stocks and arranging the buttons.
I brought the card all the way to California so I could post it on time…I hope the link is still open!
