I'm in Stiches!

Well at least my card is! I have been wanting to use my sewing machine to make a card lately and have not gotten around to it, but the moment has arrived! At first I had a hard time getting my machine to stitch but once I adjusted the tention we were so in buisness! This was a very very simple card to make, I used a sheet of natural white cadstock to created the base (this card measures 4x9) and then just got a bunch of different scraps from my cutting table and arranged them on the card with adhesive. Once that was done I grabbed my machine...which already had this red thread on it...now call it lazines of a blessing but I thought it went great with the colors of the papers I had used, so I just went with it!

Lastly I used my small oval punch and punched through my card base and then used a stamp from the Starlight Starbright stamp set from Verve Visual in real red and the sentiment on the inside reads"Wishing you a day filled with possibilities" I love that stamp set! And that's it! Super easy and super cute! I hope you ejoyed it, I love the colors because they are soo cheerful and springy and with the thought of a possible snow shower tonight I can always use some spring colors in my life!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stampin'

Did someone say SNOW??? We'll be right over, soup and cocoa in hand!! I'd love some more snow this year...probably not here!!

Yes, I moved my sewing machine off my workbench for more room and I have been wanting to get it back on there so that I can use it on cards!! It adds soooo much texture that faux stitching just doesn't do!!

Great card, silvia
