|Classic Closure from Wishes|
For the closure, I did use brads and put the buttons on top of the brads. How did I do that? I slightly sanded the tops of the brads and then used Bonding Memory Glue (love the stuff). You have to make sure to put this aside to let the glue dry. Then, when the card was assembled, pierce holes through just the top flap and the bottom. I tied a knot in the waxy flax and slipped it on the top brad. When you put the brads in, don't push them all the way down. You need room for the waxy flax to fit underneath to close the card.
The buttons in the upper left portion of the card is a combination of clear buttons, winter buttons, and the die cut buttons. The farthest left button is a clear button with a die cut button on top. Just below the buttons is the saying "sweet moments" from the Triple Play Kit. You can stamp any saying you'd like.
The focal point has a corner stamp stamped as a second generation in the bottom left of the colonial white cardstock (wow, that was hard to write!). The colonial white is on top of Sunset cardstock. The strip is Smoothie cardstock.
