I decided to make a couple of CAS designs that let the new Die-namics Button Border take center stage. For my first card, I used a Sweet Tooth Card Stock base and popped up a Sweet Tooth layer out of which I cut the button border. Then I cut a bunch of the individual buttons, stamped them with images from Finishing Flourishes,using Sno Cone Ink, Kraft Ink, Lemon Drop Ink, and Razzle Berry Ink. I also cut some from thin chipboard and adhered the layers together to give the buttons more “body” before threading them with black twine and popping them up on foam, nestled in the “negative space” created with the border. Using Black Licorice Ink, I stamped a sentiment from You Make My Day, which is last month’s Triple Scoop set and will be available on it’s own tonight at 10pm.
Here’s the inside with another button and another sentiment from the set:
For my second card, I cut my Die-namics Button Border out of Black Licorice Card Stock and used it as a background for *real* MFT buttons. They are threaded with my fave hemp cord and the sentiment is from Clearly Sentimental About Art, stamped with Black Licorice Ink. I’m also using Kraft Card Stock and Sweet Tooth Card Stock from the MFT Boutique.
Here’s the inside, with another sentiment from the set. I prefer to keep the inside of my cards pretty clean to leave room for a personal note.
And that’s it for now! Hope to see you at the release party and then the New Product Tour at 10pm!
