I made the following card for friends of ours who recently moved in to their new home. We finally got to pay them a short notice visit yesterday (as we had a change to our original plans due to dearly beloved's broken finger) so I whipped up this card.
I was looking through my stamps and came to the sad realization that, despite having an awful lot of stamps, I don't have any "new home" stamps! Must remedy that soon! But my new goodies that I won from Colorbök
came in very handy. The pretty patterned papers and the punch out sentiment are all from the Earth Tone Florals Punch-Out 12x12 Pack and were perfect for this card. The textured Twilight cardstock is from Close To My Heart.
And no, your eyes aren't deceiving you, I got my sewing machine out for this one a did a little zigzag stitch around the inside of patterned paper - after I had distressed the edges a little with my CTMH Distressing tool that I finally found hiding in my tool caddy.
Challenges for this card:
Sketch: Get Sketchy #49
Paper Sundaes: Stitching
Alota Rubber Stamps: make a distressed card (I have some really cute new stamps from Alota and hopefully you will see them here on the blog really soon - featuring absolutely the most adorable cow you have ever seen!)
Thanks for stopping by!
