I'm back again today to participate in Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop. This month's challenge is to use buttons. I used them in a traditional way by embellishing my ribbon and sentiment focal point on this sympathy card.

Instructions

(1) Trim pure poppy cardstock to create an A2 card base.
(2) Trim patterned paper and adhere to card front.
(3) Trim doily in half. Adhere half to card front and the overlay the other half with foam adhesive.
(4) Add ribbon treatment with button and twine.
(5) Stamp oval decorative border and sentiment and cut out/die cut.
(6) Adhere sentiment focal point to card front with foam adhesive.
(7) Embellish each side with buttons/twine.

Ink :: SU! - black
Paper :: PTI - pure poppy, white
