The challenge this week was to add stitching, either faux or real to a project. It is my hubby's birthday on Friday so I decided to make a guy card and used my CTMH stitching stamps - which I LOVE- to the card. First I actually used CTMH paper for the background, then I layered on a free vintage bicycle graphic from Graphics Fairy that I printed onto white cardstock from my printer. I embossed the bike paper with a writing Cuttlebug folder and then added some Distress Ink on top to highlight it. After mounting it onto cardstock I popped it up with foam dots. I used the stitching stamps to add black zigzag 'stitching' to the sides of the front, and inside I added a dotted 'stitch' around 3 sides. I then added a white embossed 'embroidered' flower stamp to the front and inside of the card and "I'm sew happy" to the inside as well.
I have another free vintage bicycle link on Pinterest. Check it out at http://pinterest.com/karlayungwirth/ on the Card and Scrapbooking Ideas board!
Clearsnap had a link today on Facebook to a video showing a how to for a cute card and thought I'd pass it along:
Well, I've got to head to bed before baby wakes, but I just wanted to say Thank You for reading my blog. Someone actually came up to me today at Scrapbooker's Paradise and said "I follow your blog!" and it really made my day. Thanks Angela ; ) It's been a crazy 2 months and I've missed scrapbooking and card making and posting more often, so it meant a lot to hear that!
