Sending My Love...




I received a lot of feedback on my previous Baby Button card, so I made a Valentine’s version.  I have a tendency to hoard buttons, so the button cards are great for making a dent in my button supply.  This is a super simple card that has great impact.  I cut the heart image with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  I then used the negative image as my top mat.  The buttons were randomly applied to fill in the heart image.  The stitching was completed with the help of the Close To My Heart ruler which has a stitching guide.  It is hard to tell from the photos, but the whole card has a nice shimmer thanks to Smooch spray.  All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted.

Wow! I just saw Jeanette Lynton's blog and she has almost this same card!! Did you use foam dots to add the cut out heart layer and add buttons under? Or is this the front of the card with a cut out and buttons go inside?

I was one of those fans of your other button card and this one's just as cute. The look makes a really cute Valentine card Allisa. Hugs!

Karen-The top layer of this card is the negative image from the heart which can be cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge. I placed the buttons on the card front and then put the negative image on top to "frame" the buttons. I did use double sided foam tape on the edges of the top layer, so the card front has a smooth finish and not bumpy from buttons. I had not been by Jeanette's blog yet today, surprised to see that she has a button heart card up as well! It is really a simple card to make with a lot of wow factor! Thanks for the comments!
