PTI March, 2010 Blog Hop: Buttons


My card for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop is basically a CAS card, employing only two stamps and three colors plus cream. I simply stamped the curlique branch from Turning a New Leaf in Ripe Avocado. LOVE this stamp set!!! I then added various sizes of button "flowers" in Ocean Tides and Aqua Mist, tied alternately top and bottom with cream crochet thread. I punched and attached a strip of Aqua Friends 'Til the End flowered paper to the left edge, embellished with more crochet thread. Finally, my Giga Guide Lines sentiment and rounded corners finish off this simple Thank You card, which will soon be on it's way to friends!
Paper: PTI's Vintage Cream CS; Friends 'Til the End DP
Stamps: PTI's Turning a New Leaf & Giga Guide Lines
Ink: PTI's Ripe Avocado & Ocean Tides
Embellishments: PTI's Holiday Mix Vintage Button Collection
Tools: Fiskars' Apron Lace Punch; WeRMemoryKeepers Corner Rounder

Good idea to knot the buttons both on top and on bottom -- I tend to stick to one or the other and doing it your way certainly adds more interest! Pretty card!
