Graphic 45 Card with ABC Primer Paper, And Button Challenge over at Paper Players #87

I love Buttons, I really have to control myself when it comes to using them on my cards. So this was the challenge for me, fun and easy. My friend Deanna showed me this paper and some cards that she had made and I just had to make some too. I had so much fun with it, using my framelits, embossing folders and punches and only one stamp to make these 2 cards!!

I think this card is perfect for a Teacher gift. I am going to make a bunch of them and give them to my Son's 4th grade Teacher. The paper is Graph 45 and I used several different papers from the "An ABC Primer Collection"

 If you like to use buttons or just want to join a fun Challenge, just jump over to The Paper Players. The Design Teams Cards are fabulous fun this week!!

This is a very small amount of my Button Collection. Just the jars that are in my dinning room.

I added just enough glitter so that it had that fun vintage look.

Here is my Button, I used the Deck the Halls buttons. Then I took my 3/4 inch circle punch and punched out my image. I punched out some circles in black and added them to the back of the image to make it more stiff. I used Hot Glue so that it will stay on my card forever. 

This card was also a ton of fun to make. I just love that ABC paper down the side, that is what I used for the small images on the buttons.

Used the Dazzling Diamonds glitter here on her outfit.

I used a metal tag behind this image. So cute I love it!

I have had this cute stamp set for a really long time. It's called "It's Academic".

 Thank You for looking

Oh I just love how you used the images from that paper! And so clever to add an image on top of a button.
