Cute as a Button

Hi all :-) I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend :-)

As some of you know I am currently following an online course called A Cut Above which is teaching us about Dies, Embossing and die cut machines ,, I am really enjoying it and learning alot, especially about my new silhouette Cameo machine ,,, soo much better than my Cricut ,, which is now looking sad and forgotten on my cupboard ,,, :-/

Yesterday in my first DT pack from Crafty Ribbons, I received this fab box of Flower Blooms buttons,,, and these were the inspiration for my card.Kristina Werner did a fab video on using the silhouette text features and this is the card I made following her instructions.



I use SU Bashful Blue card ( from Mandi) for the base and Neenah card for the white letters. I popped some acetate on the inside behind the ‘CUTE’ and added one of the flower bloom buttons, tied with white hemptique twine onto the front. I smothered the white letters with Star Dust Stickles and added some spotty DP on the inside. I rounded all the corners and used a white gel pen to ‘sew’ the edges.



Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
