Cut It Up #6: Button Time!

Welcome to another challenge at Cut It Up!  This is an exciting challenge and a great time to use those buttons you've been hoarding!  Today is Button Day!  The challenge is to make any kind of project as long as you incorporate at least two buttons and don't forgot the die-cut!  This challenge starts today and ends November 28th, Noon EST.
You could win this fabulous prize sponsored by Cut It Up

For my card, I chose to use my Cricut Sweethearts cartridge.  I don't use this cartridge enough and don't know why as it has really cute images!
I wanted to create a card using the Gumball machine found on p. 38.  I cut the shadow, blackout and layers, all using Cricut Craft Room at 4 1/2".  The blackout feature I cut using a piece of acetate that comes off of the Cricut mats.  For the gumballs, I used buttons!  Who doesn't love Button Gumballs...haha (Saves on cavities...)

Materials Used:
*A2 long card
*Cardstock by Recollections
*Patterned paper from Sweet Nectar K & Co Mat Stack
*Sweethearts Cricut Cartridge by Provocraft (p. 38) at 4 1/2" using shadow, blackout, layers
*Cricut Craft Room to hide contours and select layers
*Studio G red ink
*EK Success Scallop Border Punch
