Colorful Buttons Note Card

Last time Cousin Pati stopped by, we were talking about buttons. We both have extra buttons lying around.

I don’t often use buttons on cards – it makes a card expensive to mail.

I did pull out an old Sizzix/Stampin’ Up! Embosslits die – Sweet Buttons, to create paper buttons.

Supplies:  Paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, PopTone Razzle Berry, Sour Apple, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, dies – Reverse Confetti (quilted tag), Stampin’ Up! (buttons), corner rounder – We R Memory Keepers.

Watercolor Gerbera Daisy Birthday Card

Another daisy card (sorry!). This one was stamped (with some masking), embossed and watercolored. I dropped it at the Post Office on Thursday, 90% sure it would not make it to the recipient in time for her birthday. I hope the card itself makes up for late delivery!  😉

Supplies:  Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, watercolors – Sakura Koi, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.
