Another Monday friends. YAY (enter scarcasum here). My weekend was just too short as always, but, I am thankful for it just the same :).
Today I wanted to share with you a card that I made to enter into the Young Crafters Unite "Sewing/Stitching" Challenge. I've been bummed for a while because my sewing machine (which is literally JUST used on paper) wouldn't thread properly. I was determined to make it cooperate this weekend - and was rewarded by my efforts!
I used Lawn Fawn stamps and their 6x6 Petite Paper Pack to create a quilty card: I started by cutting a bunch of strips of paper and weaving/tacking them down to a card base. Then I ran it through my sewing machine. The images here on the card are from a variety of Lawn Fawn Sets: Say Cheese, Gnome Sweet Gnome, Bon Voyage, and Partly Cloudy. The polaroid is popped up with foamies for a little added dimension, and I finished the card off with some bakers twine (The Twinery), a giant pearly brad (Pink Paisley), and some sparkly gems (Prima). I love - just LOVE - how it came out. Makes me super happy! I love the LF patterned paper. It is so bright and fun!!! Perfect for cards! I'm also entering this card into Simon Says Stamp (who doesn't LOVE Simon Says Stamp? I just placed ANOTHER order with the today!!!) Bingo Challenge because I incorporated brads, twine, & a giant pearly brad. I think it works. This is such a fun one - play along & let me know so I can peek at your project too ;). Anyway, thanks for peeking! Have a great day!!!
