Button Circles Christmas Card

Here's my second entry in this week's Willow Sketchie Challenge which I also made today. Had two ideas and couldn't decide between them, so made both. Hope you all like it. :D

Button Circles Christmas Card

I used a white card as my base card. I then stuck a red and a green ribbon across the bottom of the card. I then made a red and a green bow which I stuck to the alternate coloured ribbon. I then cut 4 circles out of white card (1 large, 1 slightly smaller, 1 small and one slightly smaller than that). I glued the 2 bigger ones together (smaller one on top) and the 2 smaller ones together (smaller one on top again). Next I overlapped the smaller circles onto the big ones and glued it into place.


I then glued red and green buttons all around the small circle (using the smaller circle which I glued to it as a guide), and then around the edge of the large circle (once again using the smaller circle which I glued to it as a guide). Next I coloured in a Free My Memories Of Days Gone By Santa Digi in Photoshop, printed it on white card, trimmed around it and glued it to the center of the larger circles. Lastly I made a "Merry Christmas" sentiment in Photoshop, printed it on white card, trimmed around it and glued it to the center of the smaller circles.

Had heaps of fun making this card, was good to get to use some of my buttons too. I would once again like to thank Clairebears from Willow Sketchie Challenge for a fantastic recipe and sketch. Good luck to all that enter. :D

  9. Thanks Claire :-* Glad you like it :D I wasn't going to make this one, but I couldn't get the idea out of my head... So that's why I used it as my 2nd entry ;)

    Thanks Hazel :-* The buttons came from a mixed pack which I got several of from a bargain store (I keep buying a new pack every now and then, my boyfriend says I'm addicted, lol) a variety of colours come in the pack and I then separate them into colours and put them in spice jars... But I have ended up with a lot of buttons which are the same and I thought I would never use them... So am glad I have used some of them now... Now my red and green jars have room in them so I can buy more buttons... Lol ;)
