The stitches on this card are rub-on ones from Die Cuts With a View. I love to use my sewing machine on cards and layouts but this was the quick way to add some stitching and it feels a little like cheating!!! You might also notice the "distressed" edges to the dot paper. I am recently in love with the Tonic Paper Distresser. It is a fast and easy way to rough up your cut edges a little bit. It gives a little more intense look then just using sandpaper and it is so easy to use.
It is a little hard to see but I did use Stickles for the middle of one of the flowers and of course, the last little touch to finish my card is the addition of some rhinestones. Since this card just seems like a "girl thing" anyway, it must have some BLING!
Materials: Solid cardstock, Patterned paper – Velvet Floral/Back to Basics and Ella Toile/Shabby Princess/Bo-Bunny Press, Fluid Chalk stamp pad – Clearsnap, Rhinestones – Mark Richards, Inc, Rub-on greeting – Bo-Bunny Press, Rub-on stitching – Die Cuts With a View, Paper Distresser – Tonic, Stickles - Ranger
Glad you visited! Take a moment to say HI!
(Will you cut up a piece of paper just to create a card or to cut out a design?)
