This month, Papertrey Ink challenged us to use buttons on our project! I love buttons! On my cards I usually just incorporate them as a small accent, but for this challenge I decided to make them more of the focal point.
I was so excited to buy Distressed Stripes this month and I've had my order for almost a week and I hadn't had a chance to ink it up so I new I wanted to use it for this card. I had so much fun building this plaid! I can already tell that it's going to be a set that sees lots of ink! After I stamped the plaid, I used my Fiskars circle cutter to cut out a 2" circle. I don't use it often because it always slips and never gives me a clean circle, but since I knew I was going to cover it up with buttons that didn't matter. After I attached the buttons, I felt like it needed just a little something in the top corner. I think the twine was a nice final touch.
And here is a close up. I have also been using trying of Becky's photography tips! It's been fun trying out some of the different settings - rather than just using "automatic" for everything!
Thanks for Hopping!
