CC with Blueprints--All Buttoned Up



Buttons are a fun embellishment and this month, the MFT Creative Team
was challenged to use the button elements from Blueprints on our projects.


I began by painting swatches of Peerless Watercolors on a sheet of watercolor 
card stock with a waterbrush. After it was completely dried, I diecut the button
elements from Blueprints 8, 14, and 18 from the different colors.


To make the buttons pop, I adhered them to a top folding Black Licorice
card base, and white embossed a sentiment beneath them.

For more inspiration, visit the MFT blog to see the projects from the designers
who took on the button challenge. Thanks for stopping by!
