Button Frenzy

This card originated at a free class my public library offered a few months ago. It was a bit of a cluster since there was only 1 Big Shot and 1 Button Die for about 15 people to use (in addition to the 4 other cards we were making). Each button consists of 4 layers which meant 4 passes through the Big Shot. The sample was completely different than what I created. I used a lunch break to pop in and crank out my buttons and opted to maximize my effort and create multiple shapes and sizes using the other pieces of the dies. The original just used the small square button.

I guess you could say I got a ‘tad’ bit frenzied with my button making and piled them all onto the card.

The Kraft background is inspired by cork, I handwrote the sentiment to indicate a note pinned to a bulletin board, and the buttons made me think of cute push pins.
