Happy Birthday Button Card

Happy Birthday Button Card

This card was inspired by one I saw published in Paper Crafts magazines, but I put my own twist on it. I selected colorful buttons that I bought in the sewing section of the craft store (because they are less expensive than the ones sold in the paper crafts aisle) and glued them in a rainbow row onto some cardstock I had mounted onto some black paper. Then I adhered it onto a card I had made with white and black card stock and some cheerful green birthday paper. I lined the edge of the card with my silver leafing pen and handed it to my friend Sarah, for her birthday. 🙂


I love the perspective and dimension in is photo:

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
