Dies R Us ~ Holly Jolly Christmas Button Card

Good morning friends.  I love looking at vintage button cards on Pinterest and I equally enjoy making my own button cards.  (See this post HERE) Today's card uses Poppystamps Frosty Snowflake Buttons, however there are so many wonderful BUTTON DIES is the store, the possibilities for cards and projects are endless!  They are ALL are oh, so adorable!!

I started by cutting the snowflakes and Poppystamps Stitched Holly Leaves and Berries out of white and aqua mist colored card stock.
I cut some Poppystamps Main Street Pinpoint Tags out in various sizes and colors of card stock.  I often do this when I don't know exactly how my project is going to play out.  This gives me options to play around with.  Whatever I don't use, I use on future projects.  
I layered the snowflake buttons and attached them to the smaller white Main Street Pinpoint tag to create the button card.  Some PTI  button stamps were used to create the button tag as well.  

I added the holly leaves and berries to the sentiment banner at the top and some bakers twine to finish this off.

Here's a list of all the dies I used that can be found at Dies R Us:

    Your card is beautiful Birgit....I've not heard of button cards before, which is strange since I spend far too long on Pinterest! Love the colour combination you have chosen, and the snowflakes and tag are just gorgeous, as I'd the white holly and berries!

    Once again your color choices are perfect. The centers of the snowflakes actually look like real buttons. Great card Birgit.
