to make these cards, I inked my card blanks with the coordinating colours. I die cut the stitched square from white cardstock. I added my large sentiment stamp to this, placing it near the bottom. I coloured the open areas in the sentiment to match some paper I had chosen. I added wink of stella over the colouring for a bit of added sparkle. I cut a strip of the patterned paper and die cut with the same stitched square die so this detail would follow right around the edge of the card. I then used a landscape die to create a curve on the bottom edge to follow the sketch. i threaded some twine through the button and tied in a knot. I glued all the layers on to my card blank before finally adding my button. to finish the card, i also stamped a matching 'congratulations' sentiment inside the card.

i made a slight change on the girl card, using a white paper flower and a small pink button instead of the large button. i still added the white twine, but tied this in a bow to be more girly.
