Basic Grey Buttons and Brads

These two projects were made to showcase Basic Grey's button and brad collections, which coordinate with their awesome designer papers. Please see the full product review on the ODBD blog HERE.



The first card was cut with Spellbinders Nested Butterfly dies, layered with Basic Grey "Bittersweet" paper, and embellished with matching brads. The stamps are from the "Friendship" set, new from Our Daily Bread Designs this month.

The next card came about pretty quickly once I layed my hands on the new "Lemonade" paper...which had almost every button color in it!!! I just happened to have some gingham ribbon which matched the gingham stripe in the dp. The "flower" stems were punched with a Martha Stuart foliage punch. The verse is from another new ODBD set this month, called "Get Well".

Thanks for stopping by today! Don't forget to stop by the ODBD store this week and pick up your Basic Grey buttons and brads, which, by the way, are the Super Special Sale item.....20% off until Saturday night at midnight! Have a blessed day!!
