More sewing


Another scheduled post from me after my exciting weekend away. I hope I had a good time and bought lots of crafty goodies. I will let you know and also share a pic or two.

My card today is for a mid challenge reminder at A Little Bit Crafty where our first challenge is Anything Goes. We have 3 great sponsors so well worth playing along. I decided to make a vintage sewing card as I love making these and they are very popular at craft fairs. I always regretted not buying the Papermania Persimmon pad so when I saw somebody had one for sale at a recent craft fair I bought it and that is my backing paper on this card. The image is a freebie from Free Vintage Digital stamps. The dress form and cotton reel were die cut with my friend Lynsey's Tim Holtz die. The tape measure ribbon is one of my favourites from Crafty Ribbons. To get this effect I used double sided tape along the back and then stuck it at intervals to itself. The sentiment is LOTV and I added some baker's twine. lots of DI Vintage Photo and some tiny buttons.
