Love is

Love is

I’m still on my stash ban and doing my best to be innovative! I used the great photo from The Shabby Tearoom challenge for inspiration.

I used the colours, the sewing theme and also the vintage feel by using papers which remind me of vintage wallpaper.

The digi is from the Paper Shelter and is called the cute dressmaker. I recycled brown card packaging for my mats. I used distress ink around the edges of the card and image.

I used up some left over embroidery thread and buttons cut off clothes to add to my sentiment.

The back lacy ribbon was from Sew Sweet and was from a win on the wonderful Top Tip Tuesday. The green ribbon is from stash.

The inside of the card uses a heart from Nit Wits Threads and Thimbles.

A gatefold stepper!

A gatefold stepper!

I decided to make up a card type for this birthday card!

I used pearlescent cards to make my gatefold and stepper cards and stuck them together! I used a MS punch on the edges of the cards. I used craft studio to make the papers- the mice are from Nitwits Thimbles and Threads. The flowers are from WOC.

I used pearlescent inks to colour the lace ribbons for the stepper cards. The beautiful digi is from the Paper Shelter.

 I also inked the doily for the inside using pearlescent inks sprayed on it.
