The fabric store in my town’s mall closed a couple of months ago. I noticed the store’s closeout sale during its final week, and I hoped I would find some ribbon to add to my craft supplies. There’s wasn’t much ribbon left. I was lucky to find two spools that I liked. What I didn’t expect to see were the scores of leftover fancy buttons. I bought skull-and-crossbones buttons, which I used on a Halloween card, and some pretty buttons that made me think of winter … and snowflakes … and button snowflakes.
I created this card to send to a friend for Hanukkah, but it also makes a lovely holiday card for anyone. I used a transparency intended for inkjet printers. It has a somewhat gritty side for ink, which is the side I stamped on. Allow the ink to dry on the transparency before completing the card. Metallic ink tends to take longer to dry and still can rub off, so be gentle with the transparency after the ink is dry.
