Cute as a Button Cardztv Challenge!

Ready for some fun?

Join the Cardztv Design Team for our

Cute as a Button Challenge

The challenge begins April 19, 2013
Make a card, layout or craft project using BUTTONS!

Such a fun challenge and I can't wait to see what you create!

Here's my card:

I used my Imagine, my Cameo & my Cuttlebug on this card!
Watch my video below to hear my tips on creating your layering mats.

The first mat is embossed with an Anna Griffin embossing folder.  I love this folder!
I popped up the next layer and this mat was cut with Elegant Edges and my Imagine.
Again, I used the Cuttlebug folder Swiss Dots and then popped up my 
image with foam tape.  I used my Cameo for the print and cut file for the flower.
If you own a Cameo, you must learn how to print and cut.
I "glitzed" up the flower by adding a button to the flower middle, stickles on the petals and
the edges are lightly inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.  I added 4 more tiny buttons
in each corner for balance.

I added a little green bow on the top of the pot and a teeny tiny tag
with a Cardztv Stamps sentiment.  The stamp set is called Just a Little Encouragement.
This is the perfect set for those times when your sentiment needs to be small because your 
images are bigger.  I love this set!

Watch my video here for some layering tips!

Okay!  It's your turn!  I can't wait to see your
creations!  Have a great time creating!
