I absolutely love my holidays. Now that Semester is over, I'm just waiting to sit for my one and only paper before I am officially done with Uni. Now that I've got slightly more time on my hands than others, I'm finding myself perpetually cramping in my craft room once again. And this time I approached my ideas differently through sewing. It isn't surprising, the amount of times I've poked my fingers *ouch*. I made six (6) cards in total. For the first card, I created a quilted background and die cut it with SU! top note die.
After which I had the background cut out. I then tied it with brown grosgrain ribbon and punched out the sentiment with big oval punch and scallop oval punch.
Nothing to impress you all, but just a little novelty here. It involves a little bit of sewing and it's actually pretty fun. I bought a pack of felt from a craft store and decided to create something out of them. For the first four cards, I cased one of the card that Dawn created a while ago. Thank you Dawn for the permission :). I love how the works turn out. Absolutely lovely. Like I said, it's nothing too special apart from the pairing of a felt flower to a matching color. Hehehe. I made the flowers and the cards in such a way the color theme complimented one another. Here are some pictures of each individual cards.
'Any stamper knows that you can never have enough sentiments?'- from PTI. This is so true and I believe I can't agree more. Do you see the sentiment? It's a new stamp set from PTI called Inside and Out: Thank you. The phrase and its saying is sooo perfect for any thank-you cards. And it is easy as 1-2-3.
The flowers with bling bling button
And now with their matching cards
This how the flowers look like. A poppy pin at the back. You can pin them anywhere. Bags, clothes, anywhere. This is my first attempt at them and I know I'll be creating more in the future; but with more materials to decorate them, like fur, leaves etc. Or you can attach it with a ribbon so it hangs at the door, mirror. Anywhere. :)
Last but not least,
Isn't this cute? I die cut the clouds out with felt and inked the edge with SU!'s Sahara sand ink. :) I made this card specially for a very special friend of mine, a pinch of boyish-ness emphasised with a small plane. I'm really glad to have known him and wish to show how much I truly appreciate this friendship.
