Besides the sketch, my idea for this card came from cleaning out a large container of supplies that I kept because I might need them someday. But they definitely haven't been used since my move to the new house around three years ago - and probably years before that. One of the small containers was a box that I thought had a couple of punches - but it appears it was a button box. It had punches and dies and some of the old Sizzlit Embosslits - all buttons.
When the church card ministry was at its peak - real buttons were in style on cards and we used them a lot. But people were complaining about the difficulty of mailing them. So I made an effort to get rid of some of the bulk with diecut buttons. Interestingly, it wasn't long after that before buttons became less of a thing - probably for the same reason - just too darn hard to mail! My stash disappeared into a box only to be found again in the last few weeks!
