Day 7 - Buttons

Buttons come in a huge variety of shapes, sizes and styles making them fabulous embellishments for cards and paper craft projects. You can use a single button threaded with twine to add a decorative element, as I've done for my card, or you can layer them on thick to create a focal point for your project.


YOUR TURN: Let's see how creative you can be with your buttons.

I love how you colored up your snowman. I have tons of buttons (like TONS) but sometimes I'm afraid if I use too many I'll run out...which will never happen. So maybe this will be the push I need :)

For Christmas, a few years ago, my daughter gave me an old jar filled with buttons, that she found at a yard sale. It has some really neat buttons. What a great gift for a crafter like me. Love the shape of your card and this new digi. I like the twine laced through the button holes and tied in a bow. Combined with the papers, it give the card an 'old world' feel.

SUPER CUTE snowman :)
... I confess, I'm a button addict, I collect them, all too often forgetting to use them in my creations => THANK YOU for the INSPIRATION!

cute card, nice shaped! I 'found' some real winterbuttons in our holiday in Germany last week, white and black with 'let it snow' etc. Hope to use them soon on a Christmascard...

I LOVE buttons, but I've never used them on a Christmas card...
I love the November Challenge game - I learn so much by trying new ways to make cards. Thank you Beccy, you're simple great.

I have a canister full of buttons they are from my mother....my mother passed away a few years back so I don't use them but I do run my fingers through them...these buttons have to be at least 40 years old......thanks for sharing your card and image.
