Catching Up with a Buttoned-Up Birthday Wish

Hi everyone! 

Time to play a bit of catch-up so you might have seen this card last month when I attempted to play along with my Close to My Heart upline's Card-A-Day Challenge.  The truth is, I am just too busy to be a card-a-day kind of girl, lol!  I did get quite a few cards made for over half of the month, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!

One of the things I HAD to do was play with my new toys!  I finally used some of my rewards points on Amazon to pick up the Ranger Ink Blending tool that I played with at an Archiver's Card Workshop.  I used it on the background of my card for "Use a Button" day...

This technique is so easy it is pitiful!  Just use an embossing folder on your CS, lay it on a protected surface like this Kraft Mat, and ink away!  :)  I used a bit of a circular motion and moved onto and off of the paper as I went, inking up when needed.

I used the days of the week stamps on the My Life My Acrylix set.  This stamp set is included only in the Cricut Artbooking Collection available exclusively from Close to My Heart Independent Consultants like me!  :)

I laced the buttons with my trusty Waxy Flax, and attached them to the page with a glue dot.

Then on the inside I stamped Happy Birthday from the Perfect Fit Birthday My Acrylix. 

Do you get it?  Sun-day, Mon-day......Birth-day!  ;)
