Male Button card

Hi Everyone, The Male Room challenge this week is to use stash buttons. So I have twice! LOL.

It seems I am still in the "mistake" mode, I made a button card for a female!! I thought great challenge, as that is what I originally thought for her. Then started blogging it and realised what I had done! NO problem, I had seen an image which was perfect for this challenge.

I added a frame around the main image, I wanted it to look like a button card that would be bought. I added a sentiment and shaped it, that I had seen on the web. (translated, it means novelty from Paris). I sewed the buttons on the card, embossed the 2 background papers, and added a gold frame to the top layer, I die cut the oval and added die cut sentiment, which I cut twice. A twine bow to finish.

Image is from Bumble Button
Buttons off an old shirt!
Everything else from stash.

  1. mmm..good lookin novelty. Great card all the button detail and touch of gold. Pat K xx

  2. So chic! Love those shirt buttons along with the embossing folder!

  3. Since I used to be a quilter in another life, and collected buttons for a long time, I love this! Those shirt buttons compliment the image perfectly (as did the EF). Love that you handstitched the buttons on - until I read, just thought it was more of your PS magic. The twine detail finished this card quite nicely (and you know, this could work for a female too...even though it's a guy image). Well done! Wish I could send you over some sunshine..the constant rain must get a bit dreary after several days of it. Our sun would dry things out fast! TFS & Hugs
