You could substitute the button card for a small envelope to hold a gift card – actually there is room in the pocket for both. I have added an optional charm on the side using a Tim Holtz hinge clip.
The back is a piece of sturdy cardstock 6” x 4” covered on both sides with papers from the Chatsworth Collection. The button card is 3” x 5” and is also covered with paper on both sides. Corners are rounded and the edges distressed with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The pocket is made using paper that measures 5” x 3” – I have scored 3 sides at ½” and then used a plate to cut the unscored edge slightly curved. The ½” tabs are turned in, bottom corners rounded and then lace is glued to top edge before distressing edges and gluing pocket to card.
I made the flowers dimensional. After die cutting using the Paperartsy Grunge Flowers die in the smaller 2 sizes the petals are snipped towards the centre …
Then the back of each petal is gently ‘rounded and shaped’ using a ball tool. The red inner flower is a punch. I’ve added pearl centres, die cut leaves and a bit of glitter.
The buttons are made from a Marianne die. I have cut 4 layers of card and 1 from the paper for each button and glued them together – the top paper layer has been stamped with the script stamp from LPC014, the edges distressed with Black Soot Distress Ink and then a thick layer of Glossy Accents added on top. The card they are tied to has been decorated with stamps from Ink and the Dog Buttons Plates 2 and 4.
