Hello there, well I've been looking at all my old embellishments, which includes buttons and it got me thinking? I've not used my massive button supply for such a long time and thought it was high time I did. Buttons and ribbons don't seem to be used as much these days especially with CAS, which is definitely a shame as I love buttons and ribbons and think it's time they made a worthy come back. Don't you think?     

Created a A2 (US size) card blank using 300gsm white card cut down to 11 x 5.1/2 and folded at 5.1/2 using big score board and created the envelope to match using the envelobox board and score tool. Cut a stitched panel out of kraft card on the silhouette cameo, Using Go kreate medium circle  I placed the die to the back of the panel with some washi tape and ran this through the cuttlebug with tan mat and two B plates to emboss the panel. 

Removed the die and washi tape to show the embossing. Next using DIY stamping tool I stamped thank you from the Simply cards and papercraft Altenew free giveaway, inked using versafine onyx black ink pad. Selected a few of buttons from my stash and arranged them first so I knew where I wanted them to go and then adhere them glue dots. Applied double sided foam tape to the back of the panel and adhere to the A2 card blank. 

So glad I set myself a little project to use up old supplies and give them a new lease of life, I think the finished result came out well and I'll be back back using buttons again very soon. Have a great day!!
