Sew Great


This week on Create with Connie and Mary, they’ve got an awesome inspiration challenge. Honestly, these are the ones I find the trickiest! The inspiration piece is a great cake – so pretty and so yummy looking!

For my card, I decided that it would be really “like-me” to go holiday with this combination so I tried really hard not to!

The base is Cherry Cobbler and I used my Holiday Windows Movers & Shapers to cut out a bunch of the interesting tag piece. I then adhered them on the card base – boy does this give great texture!

Next, I knew I wanted to use the sewing machine from Puns from the Past so I embossed it with Black Embossing powder on Whisper White cardstock and then watercoloured in the inside bits with Baja Breeze, Basic Gray and Cherry Cobbler. I then spritzed it all with some Log Cabin Smooch Spritz. I adhered it onto some Baja Breeze cardstock and added a couple of Vintage Trinkets.

Behind that piece, I added a bit of Deck the Halls Designer Fabric. I took some linen thread and sewed a tiny “X” and then crumpled it up.

To finish it up and in keeping with the sewing theme, I added a needle threaded with some Linen Thread to the upper left corner of the stamped piece.

I can’t wait to see what you all come up with for this challenge so head on over to Create with Connie and Mary to see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with!
