Icy Buttons Background

For me, this card is all about the sparkly background! I started with a piece of coconut white card, which I embossed using the Couture Creations Buttons Galore embossing folder. I then blended Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans Distress Ink over the whole area. Once this was dry, I added a piece of double sided adhesive sheet and then poured on some Cosmic Shimmer Glacier Ice Glitter Jewels.

The centre mat was die cut using the Couture Creations Lotus Filet die. The dress form shape was die cut using a piece of felt from the Blossom Felt Pack and the Couture Creations Dress Form die.

The sentiment comes from the Taylored Expressions Sew Happy stamp set. A vintage button and a couple of mini spools were then added. The spools had been wrapped with Bakers Twine from the pastel pack by Creative Expressions.

The bow was made using two shades of Seam Binding Ribbon, two shades of Pastel Bakers Twine and a felt flower made by rolling a piece of felt.

Happy crafting!
