Isaac's Valentine

So, I was trying to make a Valentine appropriate for my button collecting nephew and I had a hard time because while I buy a lot of buttons, I hardly ever use them. I just can't seem to want to part with them. Same with colored brads. Am I the only one that does this?
I'm not sure this card came out particularly boyish but I really like every thing about it anyway. Also, it was very easy to create which is always nice.
All I needed were some scraps of designer paper, a couple of punches, a button and some linen thread. I thouht the red heart would like to be popped so I backed it with some card stock and used a couple stampin' dimensionals and voila...done.

I wasn't sure if I like the white card stock so I made another just like it on kraft. I'm still not sure which one I like better.

I found inspiration for this card from Barb Mann.

  1. Very nice. I like the second one a slight bit better, I think that it is the red button.
