A little button love

I am positive this card has been done many different ways by many different talented card makers. This is just my own version of it. I'm not trying to take credit from anyone who may have come up with this idea first. If you are that person, and are reading my blog, please let me know, and I will joyously give you high praise here!

I bought a couple bags of Foof-la buttons over the holidays, and have really enjoyed using them on my cards. I used to stray away from buttons, because they tend to make the envelope so bulky, but I stray no more! For this card, I grabbed a variety of red buttons, and glued them down in a heart shaped pattern. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom right corner. I grabbed my SU scallop punch, and punched the edge of the card, and added a strip of cute polka dot paper along side the inside edge of the card.

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday, and an even better weekend! Stay warm!
