Button Love

Hi everyone, it’s Dawn here (again!) on this fabulous Sunday and I have a fun and easy little project to share.

When I color all those pretty Cute As A Button stamps I like to keep a record of the Copic colors I used – that way it is easier to keep track of my color choices for future use.

Copics used:
Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E37, E35, E33, E31
Jeans - B97, B95, B93, B91
Top and flowers - R85, R83, R81
Bag - RV34, RV000, R81
Directions on how to make the card: 
First you need to color your image.  cut it out to 5x7.

Then you need to pick out three papers. Cut the card base to 5x7. Then you need to cut each of the papers to 5x7.
I used Spellbinders Labels 4 to create my frames.  You take the top paper and center the larger die and run it through your cutting machine.

 Next take the frame you just created and lay it on top of the 2nd paper. Then take the next smaller die and center it on the 2nd paper using the top frame as a guide.
Run it through your cutting machine.  Then you want to layer the 2nd frame on top of the 3rd paper and using the frame as a guide center the smaller die.  Then run that through your cutting machine.
Layer the 3 frames on top of one another.
It should look like this:
Attach the layers together using tape, I used foam squares to adhere my layers together.
attach the colored image to card base, then attach the layered frame on top of colored image.
Then decorate as you please. I added some buttons to the corners and I created a 3d bag with buttons in it.
