Okay, not really - but I am stepping in for Sophie, who is on vacation. I decided to throw out a challenge called "Fun with Buttons", which is all about making button-y embellishments.
I've seen these sorts of things before from manufacturers, and I remembered thinking, "How hard would it be for me to make that myself?"
So I grabbed some felt, floss, and some buttons, and I created my own. What exactly am I talking about? Well, check it out....
I traced some circles onto 3 different colors of felt. Here's an example of one of my circles:
A little blanket stitching around the edges and it turned out pretty cute, I think:
Here's my stack of 3 circles, in different sizes and colors (including the floss):
But I did say something about buttons, didn't I?
Well I found a couple buttons in my stash that stacked perfectly, plus I liked the color combo (red and green), and I stitched them to the felt circles.
Sort of fun and.....quirky?
So here's the finished card:
I went simple on the other decorations because I wanted the embellishment I made to really stand out. I used SRM Stickers (I love those things!) and some cool die cut trim from Bazzill Basics.
