Happy Father's Day


It's the first Sunday in September and that means it's Father's Day here in Australia today.  I made this card for my Husband.  He loved his card although he isn't sure about the buttons.  If only he knew how much bother I went to to put them there.  I was going to glue them in place but because I had put thread in the button holes and tied them off on the back they wouldn't sit flat, so I ended up pulling the card apart and redoing it and sewing the buttons to the ribbon. Besides buttons are popular at the moment aren't they!!!! Anyway after I played with it this is the finished result. Hope you like it.

Stamps: Penny Black Bubbly Clear Stamps set, More Great Greetings (R) 
Card: Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Whisper White, Old Olive, Old Olive & Close to Cocoa Print Pattern DP (R)

Best Wishes for a perfect day,

  1. Love the card and the buttons really set it off. The colours are gorgeous too. Perhaps next time get hubby to help put the buttons on and then he will appreciate the work you have gone to.


Thank you for your lovely comments.
