Handy to have cards

It's so easy to forget a birthday... and as a card maker I am probably even worst than most people!  So here is a card idea that I CASE'd from the web and adapted a little in order to use some more of those lovely Nursery Nest papers (see left hand card, as the other card uses papers from the Brights collection paper pack) that you can get FREE this month with an order of £45.

It uses the very lovely Button Buddies set which is designed to fit the Designer Buttons available in the main catalogue.  And couldn't resist making 2 of these handy cards, in Marina Mist and Perfect Plum with co-ordinating buttons...

I have used the Top Note die to cut a piece of Whisper White and then cut a strip of the DSP also using the die.  To cover the join I have used some Grosgrain ribbon in Early Espresso... note that it's just a length of ribbon and then I have cut off a small piece and tied a knot in it to create the 'bow' by fixing this with sticky strip/red tape.

The sentiment from the Easy Events stamp set has been stamped in the same colour as the image stamp, Chocolate Chip and the button was fixed on with sticky strip/red tape to make sure it was extra secure.
