High Hopes is an easy one for some of you ....
Buttons and Bows
but when you're button-challenged like me it's a toughie!! I've no idea why I find them such a difficult embellishment to use, so I was delighted to find this wee santa hat button in my stash that was a great match to my image ... Elegant Santa.
I didn't want to add even more height to my card (the button's quite bulky) and only had a smidgen of this ribbon left, so I just folded over the wee leftover bit to make a loop and then stuck the button down in the middle to give a bow effect.
I added some of this fluffy fibre stuff that I bought a year or two ago at the Belfast Craft Show to Santa's hat. Wow, that stuff is magnetised to everything ... hands, face, jeans, papers, probably even the dog!
Red glitter added to the holly berries and clear sparkle to his bauble. Memory Box border die.
