Janus' Baby Boy Card

Yup, another baby boy card :)
This one is for my daughter's friend Janus.
She is also having a baby boy :)
I used some old paper that I have been saving forever…like 15 yrs forever!!
Yes I am a hoarder of paper…but isn't this background paper so cute.

I used my friends button punch for the buttons.
Each button has 3 layers of paper. I adhered the paper buttons on top of each other so they would be more sturdy.
I then used some twine in the button holes and tied them.
Lastly, I popped them up with some foam dots.

The card was looking a bit plain to me.
No matter where I put the greeting, it just didn't look right.
So I added some half back pearls to some of the button centres in the pattern paper.

Here is the inside of the card.
I thought this onsie was fitting for the button and baby pin theme of the paper.
It is a stamp and then I fussy cut it out of the pattern paper.
And my index card for the message.
I am entering another card sketch challenge…look at me go, lol.
This sketch is for the "MFT weekly sketch challenge".
I hope you enjoyed my card and you all have a very Creative Day :)

  3. Such a sweet card, Tracy! Good for you for putting that paper to use! :)

  4. This is super sweet! Love the banner with the buttons and how you always go the extra mile and decorate the inside. :)

  5. Awww your paper is really sweet. I've got some pretty ancient stuff in my stash too. I really like the buttons. Real ones can make your cards so bulky for mailing. Really sweet. I'm sure she'll love it. Hugs!

  6. Perfect background for a perfect card. TFS
