You’re so sweet


I pulled out my Everyday Button Bits to make this card.  I stamped the leaves with New Leaf ink and cut the image with a square nestie die.  I adhered it to pure poppy cardstock cut with a scalloped square nestie die.  Some pure poppy buttons tied with some green embroidery floss finished it off.  I cut some strips of bitty dot and bitty box paper and distressd it with my Heidi Swapp edge distresser and adhered it to a strip of pure poppy cardstock I had cut with a fiskars border punch.  I then stamped some faux stitches using Stamped Stitches and the sentiment from Everyday Button Bits.  I tried to keep it simple since I was giving it to my eldest son, didn’t want it to look too “girly”.

Thanks for stopping by!
