I stamped these using
- bashful blue cardstock
- ballet blue cardstock
- bashful blue classic ink
- bashful blue stampin' write marker
- Year after Year Stamp set
- accessories: brads, punches, hemp and gingham ribbon
As you can see, the dark faux buttons were created using first the1/16"punch and cutting 2 holes, and then the 1/2" circle punch around them. This created a "button" look to accent the cards. Give it a try, maybe even emboss them first...
