I love making button collages on small items – you may remember my button collage apple on my teacher tag awhile back. Collage die cuts are a fun and simple way to add some dimension and detail to a design. Today, I’m falling in love with a button collage heart for Valentine’s day!
Buttons Galore Strawberry Cheesecake Color Blends
28 Lilac Lane Pretty Princess embellishment bottle
PPA Matte Adhesive
Simple Stories “Love & Adore” 6×6 paper pad
white card base
Cricut Explore machine
Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry
Crate Paper “Heart Day” stamps
I started this card by cutting my 3″ high heart out of plain white cardstock on my Cricut Explore using the software’s basic shape tool. Then, starting in the upper right corner, I gradually spread white liquid adhesive (PPA Matte) over small areas and filled them in with the Strawberry Cheesecake buttons.
After all the glue was dry, I simply attached my heart and my sentiment strip to the front of the card. This simple design has a lot of “pop” from the color contrast and the button detail. I can’t wait to share it with someone special!
