a blog about my handmade cards and paper-crafts

If You Are What You Eat, Eat Something Cute!

I enjoy making 6″ x 4″ cards because it uses up a full sheet of 12″ x 12″ card stock and I don’t have any odd left-overs to save for years.  Here’s a card I made with some algae green DCWV cardstock and some cute paper I bought at JoAnn Fabric & Crafts.  I love how the round flowers lent themselves to primary colored buttons!  I attached them with glue dots and although I like the look of a stitched button, I took a shortcut and skipped it on this card.  I used two stamps for my card – the cute cakes and sentiment below are from a Stampin’ Up! stamp.  I colored the image with Copic markers, a metallic gold pen, swiped the edges with an ink pad, embossed “Happy Birthday” and used Liquid Applique for the frosting on the cakes.  🙂

I buy buttons in bulk in the SEWING section of craft stores, where they are more affordable.
