MC Jan/12 - Thanks Sew Much

Boy did I get inspired when I saw one of Tim's On the Edge dies. I used his as a jumping off place and created my own, cutting with my electronic cutter, adding real thread on the spool, real buttons, adhesive backed aluminum foil for the scissors, thimble and thread spool. Love it...

Bummer - I'm just noticing I forgot to put an eyelet or brad or something to mimic the screw in the scissors... Oh well, next time.

To see the rest of the details and descriptions and close ups etc, just click on card image and enjoy.

I'm using a little flourish heart from Quietfire Design.. Haven't used this stamp in ages...

And it fits for these challenges:

Your card makes me to find my sewing box and machine and it is almost itching :) I think this is brill!

Excellent embossing on the side and the die you have used reminds me of pin heads.

It is nice to see you joining us this week at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges #90 Embossing. Surely we'll more of your creations in the future? :) Annemaritta
