Buttons! And this time for a masculine card for the new challenge at The Male Room

This was a chance to play with new stuff again, this time the set Jars Of Love. I can see loads of ideas for this set but here is quite a straight forward one with a sentiment which I think a man would appreciate

After stamping the jar and cutting it out I stamped a few button images to add background to my real buttons. I used my new banner punch too, love the crisp edge I now get on my banners when I don't have to hand cut them out. The sentiment fitted just nicely and I sponged the edges to lift the banner a little.

I stamped the handle of the jar across the jar image and then matched it up against the same image stamped directly onto the card front. Finally, I added a hand drawn border.

By the way, this is Buttons in our family, a lovely old gentleman, once the children's pony, now happily retired for the most part, except for the odd occasion when I hitch him up to the cart and he takes me for a spin along the country lanes


  1. L don't know what it is about jars but they always look so appealing on cards and with the addition of buttons - well just brings back so many childhood memories!

  2. Louise, what a fantastic card with Buttons you made :-)) I like how you brought them.
