Buttons (And Some Etsy Goodies)

Today I'm sharing the card I made for this week's Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger. Swoon. The inspiration photo is just fabulous. Moxie fabulous... :)


I started out with some Naturals White card stock and pierced a border about the edge to mimic the detail on the cloth napkins in the inspiration. I layered another piece of card stock then piled on some of the fun embellishments simiilar to the ones that I made for my Sew Sweet card from last week. I made this button card by stamping a portion of the SU! Sew Suite stamp in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake card stock and distressed the edges a bit to give it a more vintage feel. I added buttons from my stash, simply adhered with glue dots. I punched some holes on the sides of my button card and strung through some Taffeta ribbon in Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, and Marina Mist, and wrapped it under my card stock base. I felt like the card needed a little something more, so I made the canvas dress form with the PTI die and tied a bit of Early Espresso Taffeta ribbon around it. Love it!

Last week I promised some kits in my Etsy Store and I've finally made a few. I only have a couple because I ran out of glue dots! Eek! Right now I only have this natural color combination, but am happy to make more colorful ones if you'd like, once I restock on adhesive.

Each kit comes with a canvas covered dress form, a button card, featuring 9 vintage-ish buttons from my stash, (I say vintage-ish because some are truly vintage, from my grandmother's sewing kit, while others are much newer...) and a spool of twine. Each set is different and equally fabulous. Enjoy! :)
