Button Cards - Trees and Flowers

Two more button cards - above, brightly colored with a mix of button shapes, and below, monochromatic with simple round shapes.  I like the flowers growing from the "hello" word and the trees growing from the curving hillside.  These cards make me smile!  And I'll hope they bring a smile to the recipients, too.  Note:  The scanner captured my 3-D cards with out-of-focus backgrounds.  But the overall effect is true to life.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Paper Source strawberry (light red - retired) and Papertrey Ink (PTI) new leaf (green), cocoa bean (brown), rustic cream, and stamper's select white.
  • Patterned papers are the leaf and polka dot prints from PTI winter wisteria (light purple) and spring moss (light green) pattern packs (tone-on-tone prints - retired).
  • Die is from My Favorite Things vertical stitched strips
  • Buttons are from PTI vintage button assortments (retired), adhered with glue (Tombow green mono multi) and stitched with DMC #5 perle cotton in white and cream (ecru).
  • Images are from PTI everyday button bits (retiring 2018), stamped with PTI new leaf, simply chartreuse (yellowish green), and cocoa bean ink cubes.
  • The sentiment "hello" is from PTI polka dot parade #2 (retiring 2018), stamped with PTI new leaf ink cube.  The sentiment "thinking of you" is from PTI keep it simple: thinking of you, stamped with PTI cocoa bean ink cube.
Tree card created for Operation: Quiet Comfort.
