What a busy day! I am completely and utterly in love with my new sewing machine. It's so quick and so much quieter than my other one. Also it works which is a big difference from my singer. So i've been busy today, making a few cards. I started making a birthday card for my friend and whilst rummaging through all my bits and bobs I found lots of things in the wrong places, stamps that needed cleaning and just general rubbish, so what was supposed a pure card making day turned into a bit of a tidy up as well.
Ok so my card for today, is a bit of a theme card. It seems as my group of friends have gotten older, when we celebrate any occasion we always do it with fancy dress. It always turns into such a giggle, everyone makes an effort and always look great. I wanted to make a card to represent the theme of this Saturday's shinanagans, so heres what I made.
I have been planning this card for a little while now, just sketching it out. I like to sketch things down as soon as I get an idea, otherwise I forget them and they never seem to be as good the second time round. I used crimson pinstripe digital download from Pink Petticoat, and it wouldn't have been one of my cards without kraft card. I have fallen in love all over again, I ordered some kraft card from Papertrey ink which arrived in my recent parcel. Its such a good quality cardstock, thick and smooth and makes stamping on it really easy. I completely obsessed with this Crealies cutting die. Its great for creating layered flowers which can be used for all different types of cards. I made this flower using off cut off of the pinstripe paper and some felt from my paper and string order, finished off with a stripy button and some button twine. The sentiment I used on this card is from the Hero Arts set Essential Messages.
So can anyone guess what were dressing up as on Saturday?
Have a good evening.
I will be back with some else new!
