Button Up Christmas

Still need Christmas cards? If you do, can I tell ya something?

Christmas is 6 days away friend.
If you still need Christmas cards ya' kinda gotta get a move on!

Here's a cute, quick idea for you:

This card is so easy to put together and what I love the most is that the colors in the Designer Paper I used coordinate so well with many different button colors. I especially love that I was able to use retired buttons from last year because the colors were perfect! It's awesome to be able to use up your stash and make room for more stampin' goodies!

The card base is Crumb Cake and the top layer is a piece of Whisper White cut at 4" x 5 1/4". I started building the design by adding a strip of Riding Hood Red cardstock cut at 3/4" x 4" across the bottom. Next, I added a piece of Letters to Santa Designer Paper cut at 4" x 3". I left a slight separation in between so I could add a line of Dazzling Diamonds glitter with my 2 Way Glue Pen.

On top of the DSP, I added another strip of Riding Hood Red cardstock and then drew a line of glue across the top of the strip and added more glitter.

The greeting from the Christmas Greetings stamp set was stamped across the top in Riding Hood Red ink.
Last, I chose a button and added Linen Thread and a Mini Jingle Bell to it. It was attached to the card front with Mini Glue Dots and all that was left was to add the sentiment to the inside of the card.

Voila! Quick, cute and easy Christmas card.

Now, I'll be with the rest of you and making up a bunch of these tomorrow! HA!
Have a fun evening!
