PTI Blog Hop
I used Craft-A-Board which I bought here. It cuts very easily with dies and a Cuttlebug. But I have also made buttons in the past with cereal boxes. After cutting with the dies, I punched a couple of holes for my button holes.
Because Craft-A-Board is white, if you ink it the color stays true. I inked one button in Hibiscus Burst, one in Berry Sorbet, one in Sweet Blush, and one I kept natural.I used Stickles in Fruit Punch on each. I like this Stickles because it works well with different shades of pink and peach.
The next morning, I was ready to put my card together.
I cut the card base using Sweet Blush cs. Then I cut piece of Spring Moss and adhered it. The cream piece was first stamped with the background stamp in London Fog ink, and then I stamped the flourish in Spring Moss. I inked the edges with Antique Linen and distressed them. I adhered this to card. Next, I used the largest die to cut the bloom in Sweet Blush and then stamped with Versasmark and heat set with embossing powder. Using scoretape,I attached a button to the center of each bloom. The final step was to adhere the flowers to the card.
