Buttons - Real or Handmade

Our challenge over at Crafty Creations this week is to use buttons, either real or handmade.

After I bought this new stamp set from Stampin Up I had a browse through the Splitcoast Stampers website as they have a complete section dedicated to SU & each stamp set you can buy has it's own gallery of yummy inspiration!

I found this card & couldn't wait to get the set inked up!.

I opted for the handmade option of the button & have used a Sizzlits die & Old Olive cardstock from SU. I've scored across the button to give it a textured look.

The papers are Papermania & the red carstock is the yummy new Cherry Cobbler from SU as is the ink for the red bauble. I've edged the red cardstock with the SU Eyelet Border punch.

The bauble has been doubled up to create a 3D effect & has been blinged with crystals from my stash.

The baubles have been mounted on mats cut with labels 3 nesties & the white mat has been embossed with the snowflake folder.

Pop across & see the inspiration from the rest of the DT & try & join us in this weeks challenge, after all we all love to use buttons.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges this week
