Button It Valentine!

This time last week I was making a Valentine card for my hubby but I'm only now getting around to blogging it. As I've added buttons to the card I'm entering it into the CD Sunday challenge - Add a button or buttons.

I used some new Tonic dies to make a Flip Flop card.The heart backing paper is from Docrafts Digital Designer Favourites Edition - Forever Friends. It's such a shame Docrafts haven't added to their library of CD Roms a have some lovely designs by them.
Flip Flop cards are difficult to photograph and to add to matters I've used Mirri card too!


The central die cut in this photo was cut using a free die from Die Cutting essentials magazine issue 7. In the next photo the backing paper has reflected in the Mirri card - there isn't anything in the middle of the red Mirri heart.

The heart buttons were originally lilac but I coloured them using a Promarker. And yes Carol - they were cut off a pair of my pyjamas!
The sentiment was put on the back of the card as I wanted to keep it private. Our beloved cat has mouth cancer and we're both very upset so the sentiment reflected what we are going through at the moment.

Seasons - C D Sunday

CD Sunday has chosen the theme of Seasons this time around. While I'm writing this it's pouring with rain and more like November - the back garden is like a lake. My card is Summer although the staples I've used are from a set called Spring LOL!

The backing paper and topper are from a cd called Pamela West's Dayze of Innocence. Unfortunately this cd is no longer available to buy.
The topper is printed onto vellum and attached using staples by Craft Geek and a little tool called Pin It.
