Cut It Up #6

Happy Friday!

Today marks the beginning of another great challenge at

Did you know that today is National Button Day???
So in honor of that Challenge #6 is all about buttons and of course, a die cut.

Challenge #6
Buttons, Buttons Everywhere!
Create a project with at least 2 buttons AND include a die-cut!

I decided to make a Holiday card for my project:

For my die-cut, I used the Christmas Cheer cricut cartridge and cut my holly out at 3".
Instead of using the holly berries from the cut, I replaced them with 3 red buttons. 

I hope you will head over to Cut It Up and join in on the fun!
There is another great prize for this challenge and lots of inspiration from the awesome Design Team.

Challenge runs from Nov. 16, 2012

  8. This is such an awesome card! I love all the embossing and how you incorporated the buttons is so creative! :)


  9. Did you have a stencil to make the outline around the card or did you free hand it? I don't think I could be that precise. If it's a stencil can you tell me where to our have one or how I could do this? Thanks

    1. Hi Brenda! The white stitch lines outlining my card were done free hand with a white gel pen. I hope this helps :)


I appreciate your lovely comments. Thank you!
