playing with Everyday Button Bits

I was playing with the fun Everyday Button Bits from Papertrey Ink the other day. I thought that I would share the two cards that I made with you.

Both cards are made with very simple designs and with the same color combination. Just in case you are curious about the dimension of these cards, they are 3 1/2" x 5 1/2". They are the leftovers from trimming standard 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock to make 5" x 5" cards.

I stacked two buttons together to make the cherries for more depth. I curved the sentiment to fit in the circle. The leaves were stamped in Ripe Avocado then paper pieced with some rolled-up mini Glue Dots.

That's all for today! Hope you have a beautiful Tuesday!


Thanks for stopping by!
