A new sketch, a new card, a fun technique!

The sketch that I worked with for these cards is the following:


Since I didn’t have any buttons in the colours that I wanted, I decided to make my own!  It’s fun, easy, and means you will always have co-ordinating embellishments!

I learned this technique from Rebel Inker (she has a video tutorial if you are visual).

You need the following materials:

A circle punch (I used 1″ for the bigger ones and 3/4″ for the smaller ones.  I have also used 1/2″ for mini ones)

Cardstock and designer paper if you want to make a fancier button

Crystal effects

Crop-a-dile/hole punch

Sanding blocks

Step 1: cut several circles out of your cardstock (I did 4)

Step 2: glue them together (I used the Tombow white glue)

Step 3: punch out your top circle out of cardstock or dsp and glue to your stack of 4 circles

Step 4: sand down the sides so that the layers blend together

Step 5: punch out two holes to make it look like a button

Step 6: add crystal effects to add ‘shine’

Step 7: Let dry (be careful not to touch them) and then use on your project!

for a little extra <pop> add a second layer of crystal effects once the first layer is dry.


My first card I couldn’t seem to add buttons to the top right corner to make it turn out nicely – I still like the card so I thought I would share it with you anyways.  I had more success with my second card (and the awesome Sweet Pea DSP!)



I hope you like my square cards!  I might try to make a circle one later this week 🙂

Happy stamping!
