Cute as a Button

Funky Hand released some gorgeous baby-themed downloads at the weekend.
There are a couple of cute "Button Baby" images and a paper collection that matches the "button" theme beautifully
here are a couple of cards I've made using these cute new downloads

Materials and Tools
"Button Baby Boy" downloadable image by Funky Hand
All papers from the  "Button Baby" collection by Funky Hand
Circle dies, plain and scalloped by Spellbinders
Square Punch, Satin ribbon

Materials and Tools
"Button Baby Girl" downloadable image by Funky Hand
All papers from the  "Button Baby" collection by Funky Hand
Plain Circle dies by Spellbinders, 2x baby ribbon
 In PSP I cropped and resized the cream paper to make a square shape, then pasted this onto the plain pinky-red paper.  After cropping down to get the sort of border width I wanted, I merged the layers and resized the whole to fit onto my card ready for printing.
The image was printed twice, then I cut out some bits from one to use for adding dimension to the base image.  I've cut out some of the button shapes from the flower-button paper to use as embellishments, and a length from the chevrons paper to use as a "ribbon" behind the focal piece.
The LO for this card comes from The Sketch File
There's a gallery on the Funky Hand website with more projects from the DT using these lovely downloads - do check them out, they are all soooooo cute!
Here's a quick peek at the paper collection - you get both colour-ways in one gorgeous download on this one, so you don't have to choose ;)
That's it, I've got to get crafting....but a cappuccino first, though
Thanks for looking in today, please come back soon
