Material Girl ~ Crafty Secrets

I hope y'all had a Happy Mothers Day, my day is winding down and I'm thinking about the week ahead. I've been having some back pain for awhile now, several steroids and pain meds later, I had my first epidural steroid shot in my lower back somewhere around L 4 & 5.
Oh M Gee!! I knew when there was a nurse at my head and someone grabbed my feet, I was in big trouble! Yep, I was right, it hurt like you wouldn't believe. Dang, I got the shot in the hospital, you think they could knock me out! The shot cost over $2000, one shot, unreal. I have to have 2 more, ugh, thank goodness for insurance, I guess my 20% isn't too bad, pfffffft.

Ok, on to happier things like Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps!
This is a card I made with the new Material Girl set. Do you sew or no someone who sews or do you like to make little boxes and gifts? Then this IS the set for you, I adore it!
I had fun with this card, thinking about what sewing elements I could use on it. The pinking shears, tracing wheel, snaps and pieces of a sewing pattern.
I used my scalloped circle punch to make the flower, I just folded a piece of pattern and punched out the scallops. I used my tiny t!m stapler and stapled it in the center. Then I grabbed my Glimmer Mist and went to town! After I dried it I added the button.

I pleated a strip of pattern on a line of adhesive I put on the card and then I added the string of buttons. I cut out the dress form and the little card of thread and popped them up with foam dots.
