Card Patterns Sketch 148 Challenge

I loved the look of this sketch at the Card Patterns blog when I saw it, so thought I would have a go with the challenge - along with lots of others!!


I wanted to make a card that had a sewing theme and had some lovely vintage type papers as well as a neat set of Toodle Binks sewing themed stamps that I received as a free gift for subscribing to Craft Stamper recently.

I cut the strips from the vintage themed card and stitched them to a backing layer, which I had cut along one side of with pinking shears to provide a zig zag edge. I used a zig zag stitch around the strips to complement this.

I stamped a rectangular card using vintage sepia Versafine ink and stitched the buttons to it. The lace was applied across the centre of the card before attaching the button card. Finished it off with the sentiment stamped with vintage sepia and a button attached with embroidery floss.

Great card for a seamstress/quilter. Good take on the sketch. I always forget to use them for inspiration. x
