Vintage Sewing Card


Today it is my turn to share my take on this week's theme at Its Crafting Time which is Newspaper. I used newspaper print paper from the Tim Holtz Lost and Found stack of papers to make this card. Firstly I die cut the mannequin from the Sizzix Sewing Room die out of card covered with newspaper. I then dry brushed this with white acrylic paint and then edged with Walnut Ink Distress stain. Before attaching this to the card I pleated dusky pink seam binding across the front. The tag I made from a digital sentiment and layered onto a tag, again distressed with Walnut Ink Distress stain. Using the cotton reel die cut from the same Sizzix Sewing Room die, I made a covered reel of cotton using embroidery thread.
