Button Ornaments

This card came together very quickly. The ornament hangers and the sentiment were stamped using versa mark ink and embossed with silver embossing powder. The buttons were threaded with silver cord and adhered with mini glue dots. The stamped panel was mounted to a piece of night of navy card stock that was embossed with silver embossing powder around the edges. Of course you could achieve a similar effect by adhering the night of navy panel to a piece of brushed silver card stock. With some minor changes this card could easily be mass produced. For mass production I would eliminate the embossing and stamp the ornament hangers and sentiment with black ink. Instead of buttons you could punch out circles of decorative paper for the ornaments.

Supplies Used: Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Festive Finery DSP; Ink: Versa Mark; Stamps: Tree Trimmings, Scenic Season; Other: Buttons, Silver Cord, Silver Embossing Powder, Mini Glue Dots
