Good Morning Beautiful Bloggers!
I do sew hope your Sunday will be lovely!
This week, challenge #140 at The Crafty Pad is
We want to see stitching on your card!
Real Stitching, Faux Stitching, or Sewing a Button On !
That's the challenge! Now it's up to you!
Here's my card!
We The Crafty Pad DT were given the fab Sewing Machine Image, Elements &
Sentiments to work with! You can check these out here!
I printed off the sewing machine & ticket sentiment & was trying to decide
what to do with them when a black square card blank fell in front of me!
I kid you not, it jumped from somewhere out of the jumble that is my stash as
I sat there on the living room floor, my crafty space!! lol! Karma!!
I already knew the papers I wanted to use, I've had them in my stash forever
& have used tiny bits of them here & there!
I cut them & matted & layered, adding some lace around the outside of the
second layer & added some faux stitching.
Next I added a round doily which I inked with distress ink.
I fussy cut the sewing machine, cut out a second bobbin for the top of the
machine, wrapped some cotton thread around it before mounting it with
pinflair glue. Once the glue was dry I took the thread around the rest of the
machine as if it was actually threaded ready to sew!
I then faux stitched around a scalloped circle diecut,
Next I cut out a little bit of fabric & did some tiny hand stitches to look like the machine was actually stitching.
I also added a little posh pin I made, using the tutorial by the lovely Leesa here
It's not clear in the photo but I lightly inked the sentiment ticket with
the same distress ink & attached with pinflair glue
finally apart from the images of course, the piece de resistance
The Flower! Yes, it is handmade but no, not by me I have to admit!
It's made by a crafty friend of mine Lee & I'll tell you about it in another post!
So, thank you so much for sparing the time to look at my little card!
I hope you like it & you can find time to join in The Crafty Pad Challenge this week!
I did also decorate the inside of the card to match the front but unfortunately
I forgot to take a photo of it I'm sorry!
