Button Boutique-Cupcake & Cherry Style


Another card today using Button Boutique and some unique buttons.  Unique, because they didn't come from Papertrey Ink, that is.  I have enjoyed making a few button cards for friends lately, so I wanted to try to make another one using a couple of cupcake and cherry buttons I found at JoAnns.   I also have a new Cuttlebug 5 x 7 folder I wanted to try with...you guessed it, cupcakes on it!  I used Plum Pudding cardstock embossed with the cupcake folder and a small layer of Hibiscus Burst embossed with a polka dot folder.  A sentiment from Cupcake Collection is embossed in white on the pink mat.  The button card itself is made from white cardstock with Hawaiian Shores ink.  I just love that I can customize every button card I make depending on the size of the buttons.  These buttons are fairly large, so I didn't use a pinked cardstock square on this card.  I sewed the buttons directly onto the card and since it needed a bit more color, I added a little strip of Aqua Mist cardstock embossed with the linen impression plate.  I cut it to a point and added a few rhinestones for some bling. I hope my friend actually uses these buttons someday on a card.  I would get such a kick out it.

What a fun and beautiful card. I love how you tied the cupcake theme together with so many different cupcake elements, and your color choice is just so yummy.

This is just the sweetest (pardon the pun) card I have seen. Love the way you've coordinated everything. I think there might be a run on Joann's for those buttons!
