Buttons


First of all this wasn't my idea I saw this card on Pinterest and thought what a brilliant idea. I know you can't just change a card by putting it on Kraft card instead of white but nearly all my Clean and Simple cards have been put on white so I thought it would make a change. But soon realised that the Kraft card I have would stand with the weight of the buttons so it had to be matted onto a white card.
I'm still making banners especially for the sentiment which is a Penny Black one.
Since I've stitched the buttons on the card I think that ticked the box for Less is More.

I'd say it definitely ticks the LiM box... these bright buttons look smashing stitched down the side.

Love all the bright buttons! The stitching in the buttons was a perfect way to attach them...but I'm guessing it was time consuming. End result is beautiful!
