Wired



This blog hop is all about using buttons on your creations.  I created a funky birthday card using Shapes by Design, Lavender Moon buttons and wire.



I told you it was funky.  I don't love it, but it will be fun for a child's birthday.  I stamped the open circles from Shapes by Design five times across the white cs in the new Hawaiian Shores ink.  Then I stamped the three large open circles in black.  I threaded wire through my buttons so that they fit into the large black circles. 

The buttons needed something else so I sparkled them up by adding glue to the rims and sprinkling with glitter. Then I decided I wanted to add more wire so I wrapped wire around a Sharpie pen then flattened it out and adhered it to the top of the image panel.





All supplies Papertrey Ink unless stated otherwise

Stamps:  Shapes by Design
Paper:  Hawaiian Shores, white, black
Ink:  Hawaiian Shores, Tuxedo Black (memento)
Accessories:  lavender moon buttons, wire, mono multi glue, glitter (martha stewart), corner rounder
