Hi crafters, I hope you have all been enjoying the sunny weather! Well, at least if you’re in the UK. It has been an unusually sunny few weeks without rain!
Sam’s signature style is adding gorgeous stitching to her cards using her sewing machine.
Here are Sam’s instructions on how to make the card:
Step 1: Create a card front using pattern paper from Unicorn Fairground paper pack. Use a corner punch on the top right corner.
Measurements: 10.5cm x 15cm
Step 2: On white card stamp the sentiment ‘celebrate’ as shown. Trim to size.
Measurements: 8cm x 7cm
Step 3: Add machine stitched details. (Optional)
Step 4: Using foam tape adhere the ephemera and sentiment piece to card base.
Step 5: Embellish with StickerKitten sequins and finish off with a twine bow. Adhere card front to a side folding card base.
Tips: Instead of machine stitched lines use a white, light purple or light grey felt tip pen to create faux stitch lines. Also don’t be afraid to add additional features to ephemera. I added clear Wink of Stella to the hot air balloon to highlight areas.
The carousel and hot air balloon cards are made the same way.
I love the idea of using the ‘celebrate’ sentiment as a border to frame the images! And I especially love stitching on cards – I think it gives such a pretty and professional extra touch.
I also love how each card is finished off with a bit of sparkle from the sequins, and a pretty twine bow. If you’d like to see more from Sam, be sure to check out her blog: https://mylittlepaperworld.blogspot.com/
