B is for Button


The challenge at the Cuttlebug Spot this week is to use buttons on your card. I think that using buttons on cards is a lot of fun. The challenge for me evolved into something different: I've never tied anything on my buttons. I always just leave them plain. I think buttons look great just plain. But I decided to try something different and see how I liked it. I have some embroidery thread I decided to use and see how it turned out. I'm not quite sure what to think. So any feedback anyone has I would really appreciate.

Stamps: Inkadinkado Baby Boy (funny, huh)
Ink: VersaMAgic Pink Petunia
Cardstock: SU Old Olive, SU Regal Rose
DP: Imaginisce "Enchanted Garden"
Accessories: Buttons, Cuttlebug, Perfectly Paisley Embossing Folder

Not quite sure what I think about the thread either. It's kind of neat, maybe a more neutral color would work even better? But I do really like the card. If you hadn't mentioned wondering about the thread I wouldn't have focused on it! lol I don't use buttons much but I like what you did and may have to try something similar. Thanks for sharing!

Love all the buttons you have used and that you tied threads too! Whenever I look at buttons without threads, on anyone's projects, well...it just looks unfinished. Nice! Cindy

Super adorable baby card. I really like the patterned paper and the choice of paisley embossing folder. I wouldn't have really taken notice of the embroidery floss if you hadn't mentioned it. I do like the idea and think it looks just fine. But if you repeat the card, maybe use a lighter shade of pink so it blends more.

This is a darling card! I love the buttons and think the thread is a nice touch, it makes them look "finished".
