Then using the Fiskars Fingertip Knife trim out sections from the Pink Paislee paper and adhere using extreme tac in layers to the left side of the chipboard.

13. The back of some buttons can have that big bulky spot to attach it with. I don't like how it looks on my project so I simply snip off the back and attach with a Raisen!

Thank You Card
GlueArts Designer: Patti Milazzo

I created a flower accent for my card that was inspired by paper cone wreaths. I used Fiskars Cloud Squeeze Punch to create the scalloped petals by rolling them into tiny cone shapes and then securing them in place with Glue Arts Mini Adhesive Squares. 

Supplies:
Glue Arts:
Glue Glider Pro with 1/4 High Tac Cartridge Refill - Pro
Mini Adhesive Squares Adhesive Squares
U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam

Fiskars Americas:
Extra Large Squeeze Punch – Cloud
Extra Large Squeeze Punch – Postage
Border Punch – Notebook
Border Punch – Postage Stamp
Simple Stick Repositionable Rubber Stamps – Accents
Retractable Fingertip Detail Knife
Non-Stick Scissors
12” Trimmer

Other:
Crate Paper Portrait Collection – Pattern Paper and Accents
Hemp; pearl accent; black and brown ink; black button


Instructions:
1. Cut a 5 ¼” x 6” piece of black/gray pattern paper to be the front of the card. Then use the Postage Stamp Border Punch along the right side of the card front. Ink edges.
2. Cut a 4 ½” x 5” piece of yellow pattern and use the Notebook Border Punch along the left side. Ink edges and distress/crumple the notebook border a bit. Then adhere it to the front of the background at an angle with the Glue Glider Pro with High Tac Cartridge.

3. Cut a 1” x 6” strip of striped pattern paper and adhere it over the above again with High Tac.

5. Use the Craft Knife to cut out the stamped frame and scalloped circle. Use a ¾” circle punch for the small stamped circle.

6. Add a paper accent to the scalloped circle and adhere this to the top right of the notebook edged paper. Use the Glue Glider Pro with High Tac Adhesive again to adhere the journal frame just below the scalloped circle.
7. Squeeze Punch 10 – 12 Clouds from double sided pattern paper. Curl the clouds to create tiny scalloped cones. These will be the flower petals. Apply Mini Adhesive Squares to adhere the cones into shape.

8. Punch a 2” circle from pattern paper and again use the Mini Adhesive Squares to adhere the cones onto the circle to form a small “wreath”. Leave a 1” opening in the center.

9. Apply Adhesive Squares to the back of the flower and adhere it to the front of the card as shown.

10. Add a small square of U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam to the center of the flower to apply a scalloped edged circle punch. Tie hemp to a black button and adhere the small stamped red circle to the center. Apply an Adhesive Square to the back of the button and press onto the scalloped circle in the center of the flower.

11. Punch/cut leaves from pattern paper and attach to the flower with Adhesive Squares.
12. Squeeze Punch a Postage Stamp from black dotted pattern paper, add a small rectangle to the center and stamp/write card sentiment (thank you). Use an Adhesive Square again to attach this just below the flower.
