Faux Buttons

I decided to make a few faux buttons the other day.  Since I have the “Button, Button” stamp set, I thought it would be fun to use that to make the buttons look a little more “real.”

For this one, I stamped the button image in Summer Starfruit on Summer Starfruit card stock.  Then I punched the stamped image and 3 more blank circles with the 3/4″ circle punch.  I glued them together, used the paper piercing tool to punch the button holes, and then covered them with Crystal Effects.   They turned out very well, I think.

Stamps:  Button, Button; Petite Pairs; Ink:  Summer Starfruit, Soft Suede; Paper:  Summer Starfruit, Whisper White, Pool Party card stock; Comfort Cafe designer series paper; Other:  1-3/4″ scallop circle punch, 3/4″ circle punch, Crystal Effects, Early Espresso/White baker’s twine, Daffodil Delight seam binding ribbon, multi-purpose liquid adhesive, stampin’ dimensionals

This is a sketch used on a card I saw in a magazine, so I decided to use it for my card.  I love the way the three different paper designs all work together instead of competing with each other.  The flower/medallion was super easy.  Just punch two scallop circles, cut between any two scallops from the edge to the center (on both), then accordion fold them between the scallops.  Glue them together to form a medallion.  I adhered a scrap circle on the back to help hold it together, then added the “button” to the front.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day.
