There's Just Something About That Flower


I don't know what it is but there is just something about the Button Buddies flower image that makes me happy.  It is so easy to get a cute bold image and  that it punches out with the scallop circle punch just makes it even cuter.

The flower image is probably my second most favorite image in the Button Buddies set.   I love how it looks punched out with the Scallop Circle punch.  It is a pretty simple image but it just makes me happy.  

Here it is paired with one of my favorite color combinations, Soft Suede and Pool Party.

Mailable Monday Button Buddies

You know I love me some bumpy, lumpy cards.  When I mail these less than svelte cards they always require more postage.  I don't mind paying the extra surcharge to mail these cards, I think of it as my little way of helping the post office.  That being said it is fun to also make cards that are flatter, more streamlined.  Sometimes the simplest cards can be the most difficult to make.  Do you know what I mean?  The whole clean and simple but beautiful can be tough to acheive.  All I can say is thank goodness for the Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (TIEF)!  Sometimes just that little bit of texture really helps.  

Here's today's go at a more mailable card.
