Hey friends,

Today I wanted to share with you a card that I made for my mum.
She loves to sew and makes lots of wonderful things. I myself cannot sew so I am thankful that my mum can as she has helped us out more times than I can count!
When I saw Lawn Fawn release this sewn with love set, I knew that I had to get it to make a card for my mum.
It's her birthday today so this was the perfect chance to pull it out and ink it up!

First I started by stamping the images I wanted and then colouring them with Copic markers. I put them aside while I created the rest of the card. I should also note that I used a stamp from the retired 'bannerific' set to use for the fabric running through the machine.

I cut out a standard A2 card panel of white card stock using the largest die in the 'large cross stitched rectangle stackables' dies. Using the 'stitched scalloped borders' die, I die cut the top and bottom white panels out of it. I had some coral coloured card stock that I wanted to use so I stamped some of the smaller images from the set using Versamark ink to keep it subtle. This was then attached to the card base. The sentiments needed to be stamped on the scalloped panels before attaching so I did that using my MISTI to align it correctly. I knew what I wanted it to say so I raided my Lawn Fawn collection for sentiments to suit. Thankfully I had exactly what I needed! I used the 'hope your birthday is' from the 'loads of fun' set and also the swirly 'fun'. The 'sew' and 'much' were from the main set, 'sewn with love'. I used 'wild rose' and 'merman' ink pads. Once that was done, the top and bottom scalloped white panels were attached using foam tape to prop them up.

The main images were then attached using a double layer of foam tape for extra dimension. To make them shiny I added glossy accents to the sewing machine, jar and tops of the pins. Although it's a bit difficult to see in the photos.

Well that completes the card! Thank you for stopping by, hope you're having a great day!
