Lydia shows you how to make a Button Silhouette Thank You Card. This pretty card can be made either with three button die cuts or three real buttons. This is a quick and easy card, perfect for any "thank you" (or many other occasions). You will need 3 different silhouette flower stamps, 3 ink colors (Lydia uses olive, pumpkin, and red), a coordinating grosgrain ribbon, a greeting stamp, and craft and chocolate colored card stock.
