Multi-purpose card...

Sometimes its fun to make a card that isn't focused on an event such as a birthday or holiday. This card is one of those.

 This card was made with some papers and a tag that came in a goody box that I won from one of the blogs I follow. I love the pink and black color combo with a few other pastel colors thrown in for good measure.

Here's a side view of the card to show you that the little buttons and the tag were attached with foam squares to give the card some extra dimension.

The buttons were made with my little button dies from Impression Obsession. Love those dies!

When I make my buttons, I cut through a double layer of cardstock, resulting in two button shapes. I glue these two together, cut two more and glue them to the first two. This four-layer button is sturdy and has dimension, almost like a real button!

I did not add a sentiment on the inside, because I wanted this to be a sort of "all-purpose" card.

I did add a couple more little buttons. I think they add just the right bit of color.

Here's a closer look at these two little buttons. I threaded them with some pink and white baker's twine, the same twine I used on the front to make a bow on the tag.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

That is so cute. Love the chalkboard look. And the button die is great--adds interest without the bulk for easy mailing.
