Put a button on it!

Christmas card inspired by the Totally Gorjuss Anything Goes...with a Button challenge and the Texture challenge over at CraftyCatz.


The Gingerbread couple are from the Nitwit stamp collection, and I've used coordinating papers from the same range.  There's also ricrac, lace, string, ribbons and of course...buttons!  The stamped images are coloured with Promarkers - I think I'm improving!  

I recently bought some Bookbinding Glue from Pinflair.  This stuff is brilliant!  The string on the card is attached to the edge of a card oval using the glue.  It dried first, and that string is going nowhere - no more will embellishments like this be falling off!  I tried some on string and scrap card, let it dry and then tried pulling the string off - the card tore, but the string remained attached to its card base.  It has multiple uses and I'm looking forward to experimenting more with it.
