Button It Valentine!

This time last week I was making a Valentine card for my hubby but I'm only now getting around to blogging it. As I've added buttons to the card I'm entering it into the CD Sunday challenge - Add a button or buttons.

I used some new Tonic dies to make a Flip Flop card.The heart backing paper is from Docrafts Digital Designer Favourites Edition - Forever Friends. It's such a shame Docrafts haven't added to their library of CD Roms a have some lovely designs by them.
Flip Flop cards are difficult to photograph and to add to matters I've used Mirri card too!


The central die cut in this photo was cut using a free die from Die Cutting essentials magazine issue 7. In the next photo the backing paper has reflected in the Mirri card - there isn't anything in the middle of the red Mirri heart.

The heart buttons were originally lilac but I coloured them using a Promarker. And yes Carol - they were cut off a pair of my pyjamas!
The sentiment was put on the back of the card as I wanted to keep it private. Our beloved cat has mouth cancer and we're both very upset so the sentiment reflected what we are going through at the moment.


  1. Hi Pamela. I can't believe that you did use pyjam buttons. It really did make me smile. Thank you for sharing this lovely card with us. You know I am thinking of you both.
