CAS My Friend, Buttons, Gel Pen Tip Too!

Today I’m sharing a Clean and Simple (CAS) 5 minute card I made for the Splitcoast Stampers SU Creative Crew… and a tip learned at a recent leadership conference!CCREW051CF_1_SharonField

Today’s card was for the CCREW0512CF Challenge:  Catalog Focus Theme:  Time to Blossom Challenge – make a card or project featuring flowers, punches, die cuts and/or buttons.    My card features Brights Collection flowered buttons in Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive along with the “My Friend” stamp set.  white gel pen thread painted directly on buttonsThreaded buttons were created by painting between button holes using a white gel pen… and then buttons were attached to the card front using mini glue dots… no more tediously threading those buttons !!creative crew design team card closeup ccrew0512CFYou, too can play along with the creative crew!!  Simply create a card or project featuring flowers using punches, die cuts, and/or buttons along with SUO or SUM (Stampin Up only or mostly) products, upload to your Splitcoast Stampers gallery using the key word CCREW0512CF!
