Make It Monday #100: How to Package Cards with Oversized Embellishments #5

This week over at Papertrey Ink, they are challenging us to create a solution for packaging oversized cards.  Here is the video Dawn McVey made with a few wonderful solutions:
 And another baby card for a colleague:
 I had a leftover piece of swiss dot embossed cardstock and used my 1 3/4 circle punch to cut out some circles.  I then adhered them with foam dots and added buttons and twine.

A Signature #2 sentiment and that was it!
With the buttons, the card is too thick for a regular envelope so an oversized one was the way to go.  I notched out a hole for the twine and baby charm and stamped Modern Wood Mats in wet cement ink.

Paper: Staples 110lb white, PTI Hawaiian Shores
Stamps: Signature Greetings #2
Ink: Hero Arts wet cement, Memento Nautical Blue
Misc: 1 3/4 circle punch, Swiss Dots embossing folder, foam dots, baby charm, baker's twine, button jute twine, buttons and glue dots
