Hello (gangster) - need a break?

Hello everybody,

Tanja here with my first post for Create A Smile.
I found some awesome inspirations during the last days. That's why I created this card.
Oh - it's not only a card. It's a little gift. Because the card includes a button.

But first back to my inspiration. I would like to share it with you.
I got one inspiration from Christine. She made a card and I could not stop thinking about it. So I decided to create my beaver with this technique. And I LOVE it.  The other inspiration came from Jessa. On the Release Bog-Hop (I also used the beaver for my card then) she wrote that the beaver looks a little bit  like a gangster with his sunglasses. And she was sooooo right. That made me laugh out loud.

And like on the Release Bog-Hop  I used Comfy and Friends in the Woods.

Friends in the wood

Let's have a look:  
You can see the card with the button on it here.

And here without the button. OOOOPS - suddenly the beaver is a gangster no more.
No way. He is a cute little guy yet.

Here's an example what you can do with the button.
Maybe as a gift for a cute little (gangster) human-child??

Thank you for visiting my first DT post for  Create a smile. Hope you had fun!
Take care of yourself.



  1. Can't wait for all the cute gangster critters :)
    You girls are sooo amazing!
    Hugs, Jessa

  2. Ha ha ha ha!!! What an awesome card and such a cool button!!!! Love that he's a gangster and also not a gangster! The card itself is amazing and the added button just ROCKS!

  3. how did you make the button?

    1. Hi Tanja,
      I made the button with an ordinary button-machine. First I created the striped background using thin paper. For the beaver I used paper which is compatible with copics (thicker than the background paper). Then I cut out the beaver and glued him onto the background paper. I choosen thinner paper for the background because it's important that all together isn't to thick. Otherwise it do not work with the button machine.
      Ok? If you still have any question - feel free :-)
