Friends with Flair and a Button Card

Welcome to another Unity FWF blog hop!

I was strolling through a dollar store yesterday and found packs of Making Memories Vintage Findings and couldn't resist. The buttons were perfect for the card I wanted to make this week. You see, I've noticed that projects with button cards are getting popular. Of course, vintage button cards aren't always easy to find so people are making do and creating their own as a way of sharing buttons with crafty friends. I thought that this image from the June '11 KOTM (all smiles) had a perfect area to sew on three buttons. If it were going to a crafty friend, she could just snip off the buttons and use them on her own project.... a kind of "upcycle" effect.

Other Supplies: Paper (Springtime Vintage DP and Cherry Cobbler c/s - Stampin Up), Large Label die & Doily die (My Favorite Things), lace trim (Wyla)

I hope you're inspired to make your own button card to share. Be sure and link in to see the other FWF participants over at the Unity blog and then browse around their retail site because we're post-CHA and that means lots of new stamps!

Have a great weekend,
Cindy (aka Scrapcollectr)
