Louise - Some Cards....

Have you been to the shop and seen the bag a bargain packs?????  If not you should definitely check them out.  My first 2 cards are made with Cosmo Cricket (one of my very favourite companies) Material Girl papers and my sewing machine.

aren't they cute! I also used my sewing machine on paper (arghhhhhhhhh) a personal first for me as I always feared wrecking my precious sewing machine, but now I have started, I LOVE IT! I worked out you still need to backstitch just like on fabric.

Next up is a lil' primrose card, made with a 6.5x6.5 pad.  The flowers are from my stash and the leaves were punched.  The cage and bird were cut on my cricut.

You can see I made this card before I discovered the joys of "real" sewing, although the faux stitching looks great too and is very therapeutic when we are nearing the end of the school holidays :)

  1. Hi Louise, I love using my sewing machine on cards. It actually sits out all the time in my workroom for easy access. Love your cards. How is little William doing? No doubt will be growing fast, as they all seem too!
