Button Tree...

Hello everyone, I've made a bit of a different card with no image. I have made a tree shape out of buttons ;-) I saw a card somewhere on the w.w.w. with a button tree ages ago and thought it looked great so thought I'd have a go. Another first is the double bow. I've seen double bows on other people's work for months and finally got round to learning how to make them using a fab tutorial by Jak Heath here. I've used some gorgeous new papers by Basic Grey, I love them...

Papers - 25th and Pine by Basic Grey
Sentiment - cut from one of the paper sheets
Ribbon & dotty buttons - The Ribbon Girl
Green buttons & pearl - stash
Other - Memory Box Precious Mittens die, Crafts Too Xmas Foliage die, circle & scallop circle Nestabilities dies, kraft cardstock

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:


  1. very christmassy Sarah love your use of buttons :) xx

  2. Beautiful card - love the button tree - thanks for entering this into both CHNC challenges. You could also enter this into the Crafting Musketeers challenge 6: Christmas in October - would love to see it there too x
