Sew Chic

Two cards on a sewing theme for today.

 The first uses Tim Holtz' Bigz Sewing die and some gorgeous gold braid found in the local craft shop. The buttons are die cut chipboard triple-embossed. One is embossed with cosmic shimmer gold, one has been layered with die cut gold card to match the dress and then embossed with clear enamel, the third has been coloured & embossed to match the dress form & cotton reel. The lettering is from Tim Holtz' "Upon a Time" decorative strip die.

The stamps used on this card were the sub gift from "Craft Stamper" magazine and are from Crafty Individuals. Eagle-eyed readers will note more embellishments from the Graphics Fairy's blog (dress form & scissors). I love putting the scissors together - print out two the same size and cut each into one half, then join with a small brad. If you only stick one half down, the scissors can open & close just like real ones.

The background paper is from a cheap Paper Cellar pad called "Victorian Classic". It's full of beautiful designs that make fab backgrounds for vintage cards.
