sew lovely

  • lawn fawn: sew lovely stamp set, zig zag rectangle stackables
  • SU!: bloomin' marvellous stamp set, soft suede & early espresso ink pads and oval, scallop oval & banner punches
  • at you spica glitter pens
  • white card and small paper scraps

 I die cut two pieces of card using the zig zag stackables for interest. On the first piece I stamped spools of thread all over to create a background. I used glitter pens to add colour and detail. On the second piece I stamped a button in the bottom corner and highlighted with the coloured glitter, leaving space to write.
I stamped my sentiment and cut it out using the oval punch. I used a scallop oval punch and a piece of coloured card to make a mat. I found coordinating patterned papers and punched into banners. I layered all of these together and positioned onto my spool background. To complete my note cards/ postcards, I glued the panels together back to back.
I think these are simple but a cute alternative to a card, although it would easily be recreated as a card front and insert. These are sewing themed (see more below) but you could use this idea for all themes by changing the stamps used.
