Love is…

Playing along with My Favorite Things Sketch challenge MFTWSC278  I have long wanted a fun way to use these border embossing folders and I always seemed stumped.  This was a great sketch for these cute buttons.  I also used MFT’s Sew Nifty sentiment and a button from their Antique Button dies.  I do get a lot of play out of these buttons.  Glad i bought them.  For the sentiment panel i used a piece of magic tape in the center of the panel and then sponged around it and peeled it off.  I thought it looked a bit bare and decided to add some neutral gray embroidery thread that i pulled apart from the skein. Just the right finishing touch.

  1. Love this! Such a classic and fun card design :) I love the embossing, the color combo!

  2. Duh! I just had a lightbulb moment. I avoid challenges with buttons because I don't like the bulk, but I have these embossed buttons! They are the bomb for no bulk. I really like this card design. Brilliant!
