We're asking you to incorporate buttons (or brads or eyelets) into your holiday card design.
Here's what we did to get All Buttoned-Up.
Stef says, "The inspiration for my card was this lovely button tree by Shari Carroll. I fully intended to back clear buttons with designer paper like she did ... but then managed to somehow *misplace* my entire clear button stash ... so I did what any good creative soul does ... improvise. I used a package of Fancy Pants buttons that were on my craft table and added blue & champagne pearls to complete my tree.
Background & sentiment stamps are Hero Arts."
Lauren says, "i found a button card with these three fun purple vintage babies in my crafty stash, and i have NO IDEA where they came from, but they inspired my whole card! i'd cut these purple poinsettias and the fancy musical label shape in december for something else and not used them; the transparency was one of my many lovely xmas goodies from miss stephanie! this was a very fast--and fun--card to pull together. gotta love *THAT* right?!" :)
So pull out those buttons, brads & eyelets and show us how you Get Buttoned-Up for the holidays.
If you're worried about mailing "lumpy"cards, eyelets would be the way to go ... and we know you've got a big stash of them somewhere (at least WE do). Another option is to do what Lauren & I do ... mail the lumpy cards inside boxes with gifts.
You have until Wednesday, February 22nd at 6pm (EST) to link up your creation ... keyword for galleries or our flickr group is JB12-04.
