TaDa: Cute As A Button

Today I posted on TaDa Creative Studios' FaceBook page about a shaped card I created with their Goody Two Shoes Collection. Using Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® Decorative Elements dies, I cut/embossed S4-317 Fleur de Lis Rectangles as the shaped card base and came up with this...

Cute As A Button by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock:The Paper Company; Patterned Papers: TaDa Creative Studios (Goody Two Shoes Collection); Twine: Divine Twine; Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S4-317 Fleur de Lis Rectangles, S4-114 Standard Circles LG, S4-124 Classic Scalloped Circles LG and S4-132 Classic Rectangles LG); Tool: ScorPal and ScraPerfect (The Perfect Crafting Pouch); Adhesive: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever); Other: Buttons, foam tape

I love the colors in the Mommy's Closet paper of the Goody Two Shoes Collection. Did you know that each TaDa collection, there is a Snippets & Clippets sheet? This type of paper can be cut up and used as a journal box, accent element, a title or a frame...TaDa strives to include many elements for any paper crafting project.



I used the GT Snippets & Clippets' "Cute As A Button" element as the card's sentiment by cutting/embossing the outside with the classic scalloped circle and the inside with the standard circle dies. I gave it more dimension by adding buttons and then adhered the circle with foam tape.
