A quick bonus post for the evening for 365 Card Challenge- Day 182- Buttons and Bows.

What great fun this card was, I had these little bows in my embellishment stash for a very long time. I stamped and cut out candy corns, then embossed them with clear embossing powder to make little buttons.

The little buttons don't seem to want to lay flat but I am hoping they settle a little.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-DCWV, Stampin' Up!-All Wrapped Up Accessories, Martha Stewart Ombre Bow Stickers, Brown embroidery thread.



  1. Oh Sister,

    Sooooooooooooooooo fun! I'm craving candy corns now. My husband (hubby to you *snort*) hates it when I have them. I make little "fangs" for my front teeth.

    LOVE your fun card and love ya!
    your 1 and only Sis
