Hello friends. Today I thought I would share my "button" Christmas cards with you. I received the December Creative Kit from Pam from the kit club My Creative Scrapbook containing among others the "Gnome for Christmas" collection from Photo Play Paper, puffy phrase stickers from Pinkfresh Studio and a package with buttons from Pebbles. As I want to send my family and friends a "real" and handmade Christmas card this year, I decided to use the kit also to create some fun Christmas cards.
These are the cards I created:
Here're the puffy phrase stickers, the buttons and the word stickers I used for my cards:
For the base of my 4" x 6" cards I chose a piece of kraft cardstock, a piece of patterned paper and a piece of red cardstock.
Using red and yellow twine I tied little bows in the top buttons and knots in the rest of the buttons:
I adhered the red cardstock on top of the patterned paper and machine stitched all the sides of the red cardstock:
With large glue dots I adhered the buttons in a "tree design" onto the red cardstock:
Below the button tree I placed on of the word stickers from the Photo Play Paper sticker sheet:
From the sheet with the Pinkfresh Studio "Oh What Fun" puffy phrases I chose a word that fitted the size of the card and adhered this below the word sticker and the button tree:
Using double sided sticky tape I adhered the card onto the kraft cardstock base:
And I was done!! Really loving the result!
Here are a few close-ups of my cards:
