Button Ornaments

Well, I didn't think I'd be making a Christmas card quite so soon in the new year, but when I saw the sketch challenge at Still AddINKtive, the idea popped into my head to make an ornament Christmas card.

Here are the challenge details:


And here is my card:


While my card doesn't stick 100% to the sketch, the elements are there.  The buttons in Baja Breeze and Wild Wasabi have centers punched from the Ornament Keepsakes set.  The sentiment is stamped in Perfect Plum and the card has a framed scored around the outside.  This is just a little baby card, weighing in at 4" square LOL.

Thanks for looking and good luck to the Still AddINKtive team on their new venture.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Ornament Keepsakes; Tree Trimmings; More Merry Messages
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla
Ink:  Baja Breeze; Wild Wasabi; Perfect Plum
Accessories:  Really big buttons from the US; Simply Scored; 1/2" circle punch

Cheers
Karren

It's never too early to start creating for Christmas! I really like how your ornaments came out and to use the sentiment as part of the sketch works really well with this card. Thanks for joining our first challenge at stilladdINKtive!
