Buttons and bows

Hi folks

well the weather is still rubbish, so there has been plenty of time to lock myself in my new craftroom and create.

Here's my contribution to this months J and C Creations Blog why not pop over and enter their challenge 'ANYTHING GOES' you could win yourself a £20 gift voucher to spend on crafty goodies 


You will need

14 x 14cm card blank
Silver mirror card
'Grandma's button box' backing paper
Paper doily
assorted pastal coloured buttons
blue lace ribbon
white lace frilly ribbon
clear dew drop

First matt and layer some silver mirror card onto your base card then add 'Grandmas button box backing paper' (easier done than said, lol x) add ribbon and tuck under silver mirror card before mounting onto base card.

 cut your sizzix die 2 times, once in silver for the scirrors  and then in cream of the spindle and the base to stick some real buttons on. . cut out the items so they are seperate. cut out your spellbinders shapes and ink them up with your distressing ink 'china blue' while they are still in the dies. matt and layer them and then add sentiment.
 place doily and spellbinders shapes on base card and then add sentiment topper and sewing items. (Add blue lace ribbon to spindle before sticking down) stick buttons on randonly and add dew drop to bow.
