Happy Birthday – Button Flowers

  • Patterned papers – SEI “Bright Blossoms” pad
  • Buttons – The Cats Pajamas “Great Outdoors Buttons”
  • Die – Spellbinders Shapeabilities “Blossom Tags and Accents”
  • Stamp – from The Cat’s Pajamas “Smells Like Cake” set

This card was totally CASED* from the Stamper’s Sampler cover (Jun/Jul/Aug 2012 issue). I made a couple of variations, but was definitely inspired by it! When I shared my copy of the magazine with one of Trenton’s teachers on our recent field trip, she admired it. I joked that her birthday was coming up, so I’d keep it in mind! Wonder if she’ll recognize it? The paper I used that is framing the images has some copper foil, which you can sort of see in the photo (upper left), making some of the flowers shine nicely. I just drew the stems and leaves below the buttons for the flowers with Ranger Distress markers. I cut the die cut in half to emulate the sun. Enjoy your day and please visit again soon.
