It is almost that magical time of the month when the Just Another Button Company Button Lover’s Club boxes begin shipping! This month the theme is Summer Lovin’. The buttons in the box are the vibrant colors of everything summer. The handmade buttons are some of the cutest you have ever seen, they include summer must-haves like sunglasses and flip-flops and my personal favorite, a jar of fireflies! And of course there is an exclusive art card illustrated by me included to celebrate the monthly theme. This full color printed card is fun to collect and even more fun to craft with! I have a step-by-step tutorial for you today sharing a card I made with this month’s art card.
