Berryrific Buttons

My inspiration for these cards was berry simple - Strawberry Shortcake character dolls and BUTTONS. On this Lemon Meringe card, I used a button in the center of a flower.
Buttons frame the adorable image of Apple Dumplin'.

This Seaberry card is actually a "flip flop fold" card. I learned how to measure and fold this type of card using a video on youtube. It's very easy, but it definitely makes the card more interesting. Notice how the button border the top flap.
On this vintage Lime Chiffon character card, I used buttons as a dimensional "break" in space between the cardstock and the patterned paper.
This one is my fave in the groupoing. I used a button and a piece of hemp twine to make a balloon for this Tangerina Torte card.
Have a Berry Wonderful Day!


  1. Hi hun, these are so adorable, they remind me of the paper dolls I used to play with as a little girl, thirty years ago! haha! They are so cute!!!

    Thank you for visiting my blog, you had asked how I make my glimmer mist. I use rubbing alcohol and folkart brand shimmer paint. I use a spray mister I bought at Michael's and fill half of rubbing alcohol and I start out with about 16 drops, shake, spritz on paper to see what the results are, if I need more I add one or two drops and check! I hope this helps you. I LOVE it! it's the best and very inexpensive. You can make a lot from these bottles! Have fun!

  2. What a fun set of cards! I love all the ways you used your buttons - especially the balloon! :)
