      Love the buttons they look soooo real!
       I also love the  Beautiful Wings Emsosslits because it cuts and embosses at the same time... the 5 butterflies you see below. I cut this through my big shot machine.
       I embossed just the top section of my Wild Wasabi card stock by placing my chipboard triangle over the top section only and feeding it through my Big Shot machine with all the tabs and one clear cutting pad.
      I then swiped over my card face with the Embossing Buddy then stamped my chosen words(Field Flowers Stamp set) with versamark ink and sprinkled White embossing powder over the area, shake off the excess and heated with the Heat Tool. I glued the butterflies on with mini glue dots then added  Jewels Basic Pearls. I then mount this onto the Whisper White card base. And it's done.

      Now for the button one...
       I inked the die with Earky Espresso ink then placed my piece of card stock Soft Suede into the die and sent it through the Big Shot cut embossed and coloured with one pass through. Sooo cool!
       I cut my card stock Crumb Cake with the  Top Notes Bigz Die through the Big Shot machine. I love the little faux stiched edge this die applies.
      I then used my chipboard triangle to emboss only the top section of my cut card (refer above)

      I then stamped my greeting using the Perfectly Penned stamp set and Early Espresso Classic Stampin' pad. I used mini glue dots to apply the buttons onto the card face. And I'm done. So fast. Check back soon. Keep on stampin' ...Wendy
