Buttons - Customizing with EP
http://sparklensprinkle.com/techniques_detail.php?title_keyword=Brads_-_Customizing_with_EP

1. Run red mirror cardstock through embossing folder. Color debossed leaves with black Sharpie.
2. Sand the surface of the mirror cardstock, apply Versamark and heat emboss entire piece with Sparkle EP.
3. Stamp sentiment on white cardstock in Versamark and heat emboss with Christmas Fire EP. Cut and emboss with Tag die and sponge with Rhubarb Stalk ink before removing die.
4. Apply Versamark to brad and heat emboss with Christmas Fire EP.
5. Layer card front to red mirror cardstock. Attach sentiment tag with brad. Tie twine in a bow around card as shown and layer to white card base.
6. Apply Dimensional Glue to debossed berries. Set aside to dry. (Note: After I did this step one berry was still a little white after three days! Dimensional Glue apparently takes longer to dry clear on top of foil!)
