I have a good friend who is a keen sew-er (I typed that, then realised it said 'sewer' - as in the smelly drains kind), anyway... she does everything - cross stitches, quilts (she helped teach me to quilt), knits and does all sorts of clever stuff, and I wanted to make her a 'just because' sewing themed card.
I used Karen Burniston's Accordion Album, and 'Frame & Label, Brackets' die for the white panels and patterned surrounds.
I absolutely LOVE these papers - all from Tilda's Sewingbird pad.
I used Tim Holtz's Movers and Shapers Mini Sewing Room die for the dress stand, and then some stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink's 'Hanging by a Thread' and 'Stitched Sentiments' sets.
The sewing machine and 'you're sew nice' stamps are from Hero Arts 'Sew Artsy' set. I stamped patterned paper, and cut it out for the sewing machine, plus used some Copics, and then sewed a couple of bits of fabric together to have them coming from the machine.
I'm putting this card in the 'Die Cuts' challenge at Country View Crafts.
