Fun in my Studio

Pin It

Birthday season in our family is fast approaching!
So, I've started creating birthday cards for the ladies and
a few extra for Operation Write Home.

This week's Papertrey Ink challenge is to emboss your project with dies.
I've combined the project with the CR84FN weekly color challenge and
came up with this beauty.  I like how it turned out.

The flower was created using Papertrey Ink's Large Scalloped Border die
and muslin fabric.  Papertrey Ink's vintage buttons were added to finish the flower.

Papertrey Ink's Fillable Frames #9 Stamp Set and coordinating die
was used to create this tag.  I embossed the tag using the die and
then trimmed it out with scissors.
Sentiment: Papertrey Ink Make A Wish stamp set.

Coordinating scrap paper was layered and the stitched around the border
for effect.  A muslin ruffle, rick-rack and angora yarn were added
to finish the effect.  The panel was then adhered to the front of
a Papertrey Ink scored notecard.

Do you like this design?  The sentiment on the tag could easily
be swapped with anything to create a card for any special
occasion.  I think I may try making the same card using
a different color scheme and other fabrics.

I received such positive feedback on this card that I made another.  It's available in my etsy shop (see link on right sidebar) if you are interested.
