Buttons n thread

I made this little card last night after finding out last minute that it was someones birthday today! I've had the idea of making cards with vintage buttons for a while, I thought it would be a nice gift for someone who (like me) loves old buttons and fabrics as they can cut them off and use them afterwards. 

Than I added some lettering and butterfly stamps, although I think I prefer it without.
Please let me know what you think of it or if you have any links to other card makers and crafters for inspiration. I really do appreciate your feedback! Thanks :)

Cheerio and good day to you all x

Today I've linked up with...


  1. Hello there, I love your vintage button card. I think the butterflies and writing are nice. it's so lovely to discover new blogs, i've been enjoying yours since you met my sister. You make some lovely things,

  2. Thankyou Sarada, I enjoy reading yours too! x

  3. That is so cute. I love it!

    Thanks for your sweet comment. Mod Podge is also called decoupage. Maybe you have that? Mod Podge is just the brand name that is popular here.

  4. hi! i'm new to your blog, like it very much! I LOVE your cards! Ive made some like this but not with thread, just drawn the stems, your's are beautiful, so colourful!

  5. Thankyou Lovely ladies and welcome Claire! I finally found a way to use up some of the billions of buttons I manically collected a few years ago!! hooray x

  6. Love that card! I like the lettering but perrhaps not the butterflies.

  7. Thankyou, I completely agree about the butterflies, really the only reason I put them on is because I'd just bought the stamp and I wanted to try them out! Ive just bought a "happy birthday" stamp, so I wont have to hand print each letter next time! yey!
    thanks for visiting, I really appreciate the feedback :)
