Not a card maker

For a lady who doesn't make cards I seem to have been making an extraordinary amount of them recently!

5 more of my vintage button flower cards. The flowers are punched from catalogues etc that are then sent to be recycled and are jazzed up with a healthy number of vintage buttons. The bottom one is my favourite.

I bought 3 tubs of paper buttons last year on Etsy and have been trying to come up with a way to use them on my gift tags that doesn't look stupid - I haven't succeeded yet! I did however come up with a way to use them on cards. What do you think? Perfect for button lovers - I'll be keeping them all to myself then!!

I think the button cards are a brilliant idea, because the recipient could always use the buttons, especially if they are a knitter or seamstress, so a gift as well as a card. Don't think I would use them tho, too nice.
