I’ve been resisting pulling out the sewing machine because I knew it was going to open a whole can of worms with me wanting to get back to quilting, but I did it anyway. I did a simple zig zag stitch around the perimeter of the design paper just to get warmed back up.
I created the beautiful roses in two sizes for a little added pizzazz at the bottom. I use an old script stamp I got back in the 1990’s just to add a little look of texture to the petals and I inked the edges before assembly.
I continued the stitching theme on the inside of the card as well. I really like the look. I think you will continue to see stitching on my cards….
The background doily die I used is actually a square. Yup, it’s a square. I just measured and cut 1-1/2″ from each side and joined it together. The bow and the flowers cover the seam, but you would likely hardly notice even if it wasn’t covered.
I like to purchase dies that I can get a lot of use out of and I’m not opposed to cutting the die cuts down and reshaping them. Why not get double or triple-duty from them!
