Hi to all my lovely new followers!
Its great to have you follow my little blog & you really are 'sew' sweet!! :)
I have another digi for you today & another chance to win a freebie!
I was making a card for my sister who has just taken up sewing and is loving all things to do with needlecraft so I decided to make her a sewing themed card.
I wanted to keep the card simple as that suits her style too. This is what I came up with...
I'm actually rubbish with a sewing machine & only have a mini one for crafting. I quite like the random sewing around the page though as it add the the handmade look. That's my excuse anyway! haha :)
While I was making it I thought it would make a great Mother's Day card too so I thought I'd give it a go!
I printed my digi onto Kraft Card first alone with the sentiment. I then cut this out & mounted on a 6x6 card blank.
To get my patterned sewing machine & matching bobbins I used my DrawPlus programme from Serif. As the digis are PNG files you can take them into your software programmes & lay them on top of patterned papers. These papers are from the EchoPark Sweet Day digital collection.
I copied the paper into Drawplus & then laid my image on the top.
Once printed I was able to cut out the bits I wanted and use silicone glue to give my image dimension.
Inside each card I added extra papers, stitched around the edges & then further embellishments in the way of bobbins wrapped in twine.
This is the digi set of 'You're Sew Sweet' that goes on sale in my shop today. It includes 3 sizes of bobbin, sentiment as well as the vintage sewing machine.
