My mind instantly went blank but luckily my friend reminded me of my scrumptious little Sweet Buttons embosslits die and an idea was born. Come and have a look:
Buttons are great for baby cards - I suppose because of the 'cute as a button' association - and I love that these die-cut ones are flat enough for posting but dimensional enough to look real.
I used Blushing Bride card stock for my card base and you can see the contrast between this colour and Pink Pirouette when you look at the end button. I love them together. The bottom third of the card front was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and topped with a piece of Pretty In Pink grosgrain ribbon.
Various shades of pink cotton has been threaded through my buttons with a needle and I added a curved sentiment above one of the large ones. To give the button more prominence, I popped it up with dimensionals and tied the thread in a bow.
Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Punch Bunch (retired Sale-a-bration set)
Ink: Melon Mambo marker
Card stock: Blushing Bride, scraps of Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Rose red, Rich Razzleberry
Other: Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Pretty In Pink 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Sweet Buttons embosslits die

We're going to a friend's 60th birthday bash tonight. He's a talented musician and I've made him a card to reflect that which I'll show you on Monday. It tickled me to bits then that when I was making this baby card, my husband came into the room, looked critically over my shoulder and asked if the card was for our friend. I said at once that as I thought pink was our friend's favourite colour and that he was just as cute as a button the card would pretty well be perfect for him...
Thank you for coming to visit me today and I shall be round to see what you've been making very soon.
Hope you're having a great weekend!
