Sew What's New?
I don't sew, so I wondered what I was thinking when I picked these fun button dies. I do use buttons on cards, and sometimes it bothers me that they stick out so far and add to the postage. When Poppystamps introduced the button dies, I thought what a great idea and there are several sizes, and shapes, titched, scalloped and plain. The fact that a lot of the work is done for you if you die cut the Button Oval and Contour Button Border and then simply add more buttons over the top. Easy!
I think I must have been thinking about my vacation and the 4th of July when I created this card. I think the three colors really make this card pop. I placed everything on an embossed background, which was then layered onto the white base. The needle was a fun addition. It's a yarn needle and I took two pieces of embroidery thread, rubbed them with white glue and spun them together. I like it. The sentiment was created on my computer. I placed the oval die over it and cut using my Big Shot. it fits perfectly inside the oval. Good idea? I think so.
Now on to the inside. Pretty plain, but pretty and there's room to write the perfect note.
I hope you've enjoyed this little card. I surely enjoyed creating it and I've got to say, sew or not, I do like these sweet button dies.
Until next time.....
