I love You Buttons! :)

Today Nichole from PTI challenged us to create a project using a button in a creative way.  I decided to pull out my yo yo's and make a card using one of those! 


If you saw my post with the table I decorated for our church event, than you know that I had purchased some fun red burlap.  I had some left over and I cut some with my Heart Prints dies and used one on this card.  I love the texture it brings!  That black doily use to be white and I made a mess with my black ink pad to color it black. I can't wait for PTI's doily dies so I can just cut a black one myself instead of making such an inky mess!  After I adhered the doily to my card, I lightly flipped up the edges of the doily to add a little dimension. 


Isn't that fabric for the yo-yo a perfect match for using with the Music background!  That was such a fun find!

Also, another fun & unique way to use buttons that I enjoy is to make button rings!! Here are a few I have in my Etsy shop and each one uses at least one PTI button!  (I am currently having a sale in my Etsy shop for FREE SHIPPING now until Valentine's Day, February 14th!  The coupon code you can enter at checkout is:  VDAYSpecial.)

  3. I love this card! What do you do with the ribbon on the inside of the card? Do you layer a piece of cardstock over it? I love your black doily and I agree that the new PTI dies will make this so easy in the future. Thanks for the inspiration.
