Faux Button Tutorial

Supplies:

cardstock
1/16" punch
1/2" punch
white gel pen
versamark pad
glassy glaze or Utee
heat tool
tweezers
powder pal (optional)

Step 1:

Punch 2 holes with 1/16" punch fairly close together.





Step 2:

Punch 1/2" circle around 2 smaller holes.





Step 3:

Draw "stitch" between holes with white gel pen.





Step 4:

Press into versamark pad






Step 5:

Press into glassy glaze, remove with tweezers then heat.





Step 6:

Finished button.





Step 7:

Add to card.

This is the first card I have made in weeks and it took way too long to make and it had nothing to do with the button. I guess I need to do lots more stamping this weekend to get going again.

I used both sketch and color challenges from SCS to help me along. I can't remember what sketch it was but the color challenge was from this week ( Cool Carribean, Basic Black and Whisper White). The stamp set is the free one we got from Stampin' Up! called Polka Dots and Paisley. Very cool.

You ARE Awesome! I can't imagine having the patience to put together a tutorial. It HAD to have been very time consuming! Thanks for doing that. I am going to try the buttons now. Love the card and the color combo.
Happy Stamper
