Have really enjoyed my couple of days of card making and look forward to finding the rest of my supplies and giving them homes!!
I love adding stitching to my cards and find it really easy to use my regular sewing machine. I have a thin needle that I use exclusively for sewing paper because paper dulls needles very quickly.
I am happy to be making cards again!! It is fun to be making single designs and using what I have available.
I sewed a strip of plaid fabric to a white border punched strip embellished with holes for both of these cards and added a layered flower. The blue background was embossed with the latest embossing folder (CB) I purchased. It has a large folder with a coordinating strip in a nice rounded diamond pattern. I reminds me somewhat of a quilting pattern. The greeting is from "The Lemonade Stand" digital collection (SU) which I printed on white cardstock and punched out.
We are loving our new home and community!! Summer is not as hot as we are used to but it has been pleasant to sit on the deck and soak in the rays!! Hope you are all enjoying your summer!
