Buttons & Bows

Over at Bah! Humbug! this week the challenge is buttons and bows.

I have put some holographic gold card through my die cutting machine in an embossing folder which came free with the Creativity Magazine a while ago.  It's a really nice Christmas tree image.  I have added blue and green buttons from my stash along with a green bow.  This has been matted and layered and added to a 5x7" card blank which was covered with co-ordinating paper.  The last addition was some Christmas tree printed ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Hi Karen - love your embossed tree with it's button additions. That ribbon is really cool.

    I've just blogged asking for ideas from all you clever paper crafters. Please shout if you can help cos I may well find a little gift for the best idea.
