Festive Friday #40


Yes, it's Festive Friday time again!  This time Nicole has challenged us to use buttons on our creations.  BUT you aren't just allowed to put a button or two on your card, they must be used as a feature on your card.  I decided to make a telescoping card for my project.

Isn't he cute???  I didn't have two black buttons to use as eyes so I used two of the new Vintage Faceted Buttons and backed them with pieces of black cardstock.  Works well, I think!  Here's a closer look at the face.

I used a scrap of Pumpkin Pie for his carrot nose and some Basic Black punchies for his coal mouth.  All these pieces were coated in Crystal Effects for a bit of extra effect.

Here he is part way opened.  I used some more Crystal Effect covered punchies for his coal buttons.  His hands were made with some cropped small star punchies (retired) and some strips of Basik Balck cardstock.  You can see I've lightly sponged some Sahara Sand ink around the edges of each of the circles for a bit of definition.

Finally, here he is fully opened.  The last section is the largest, and is where I'll write my message to the recipient.

Stamps: Curly Cute
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Sahara Sand
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Sliver Glimmer Paper
Other: Circle Cutter, Vintage Faceted Buttons, Pumpkin Pie Brads, Crystal Effects, Punches as listed, Sponge Dauber

I hope you can play along with us at Festive Friday Challenges this week!

Bye for now,



  1. Oohh, this is cute! Love those faceted buttons as eyes. They look great!

  2. Nice color choice on the blog. It is really easy on my eyes and I have bad eyes too so that's a really big compliment lol
