As they say in Minnesoda...

Ohhh, fer CUTE!!

I ordered these little zoo animal buttons from Lori at Love is in the Details, a while back with the plan to make some baby cards with them.  Little did I understand how far off the charts the cute factor would take them!!
This card has the openings cut with a Simon Says Stamp die. Then the top layer of paper is pop-dotted with a variety of mixed prints adhered behind.  Glue the buttons down, add a sentiment and you have an overload of adorable!  
I did cut the shanks off the backs of the buttons to help them lay flush, and that's pretty easily done with a good pair of utility scissors.  Needle-nosed pliers twisted off any remaining plastic that had been left behind.
These two cards are a mix of patterned papers from my scraps drawer, miscellaneous chipboard stars, bakers twine, stamps and typewritten sentiments.  
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
