A Button Up Christmas Tree


Hello my crafty friends, I am popping in to share with you this card that I made to play along in the CAS-UAL Friday Challenge # 119.

CFC119: Use dry or heat embossing on your Clean And Simple project.
I have wanted to make a card using a negative space filled with buttons. We all have seen projects like this out there, haven't we? This was fun a easy to do. I was just having a hard time with the finishing part, and that is when I thought of using the buttons embossing folder,  to add more interest in a clean and simple way and play off the button up Christmas tree.
My kids gifted me this embossing folder for my birthday, this past September. I was totally surprised. They were so tickled when I showed then this card. They loved the card and were happy that I was using the embossing folder because that means that I must really like their present and I do. I love it!
Head over to CAS-UAL Fridays to see what everyone else has created for this fun challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Note: The embossing folder is from Darice Embossing Essentials.


  1. I love all the buttons! And that bow with the streamers is so pretty!

  2. Very sweet Christmas card! And what sweet kids to get the button embossing folder for your birthday!! (btw...I always say the best people were born in September, lol) Love how the interior buttons echo the embossed ones. Wonderful card. Bev
