Buttons, Buttons, Who's Got the Buttons!

Not just a card... nope, it's a card holder!  The paper was cut on my local stamp store's die-cutter - major die- cut machine, from a 12" X 12" card stock sheet.  The bottoms fold up on the inside and are glued so they form pockets for about 3 cards and envelopes in each side pocket.  I glued ribbon inside so it would tie on the outside - pre-cut slots for the ribbon.  I used the Skyland Birds from my Hero Arts Digital Design Kit, The Art of Style, some light touches of Distress Inks Wild Honey and Broken China, and thought buttons would be perfect since it's not shipping in the mail.  I tied embroidery floss in the button holes.  I like the way it turned out.   I have a photo below of the inside of another card holder so you can see how it's put together.  I put together a total of 15 and I just found one I missed... sigh...

I'm entering this in the Lily Pad Cards Simon Says Product Challenge.  Have fun stamping!
