Next weekend I'm spending several days with a friend for our annual craft weekend. I've been looking forward to it for months, and in honor of the occasion I have a sewing-related card to share today.
Supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Paper: Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Basic Black card stock; Let's Polka in the Meadow petite paper pack (Lawn Fawn); silver foil paper
Accessories: Triple Circle Card-Making die (The Paper Cut), Dress Up Framelits dies, Handmade Charms die (Taylored Expressions), Lacy Brocade embossing folder, rhinestones, mini silver brad, silver metallic thread, 1-1/4" circle punch, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Fine-Tip Glue Pen
I used the Triple Circle Card-Making die from The Paper Cut to make the card base and to cut the blue patterned paper to exactly the right shape to layer on the card front.
To contrast with the light-colored paper, I used Basic Black card stock to cut out the dress form and three 1-1/4" circles to layer on the circles in the card base.
I embossed the dress form with a feminine, lacy-looking embossing folder and adhered it to the middle of the card front. To embellish it I added a "necklace" of tiny rhinestones and three silver sequins.
The scissors was the trickiest, but the most fun. I cut the shape out of white card stock and silver foil. I trimmed just the handles off the white scissors and adhered them over the handles on the silver scissors. Then I placed a mini silver brad at the top of the scissor blades to look like the screw that holds together a real scissors. (Looking at the card now, I think I should have also added a couple of mini brads to the sewing machine die-cut to look like buttons.)
I attached the spool shape to the middle black circle using Dimensionals. The other two are glued down flat.
Thanks for stopping by!
