Good Thursday evening - hope your day was good. Mine went very fast at work today - playing catch up from vacation is hard. Sometimes you wonder why you go on vacation.
Last night I did get a chance to play with some paper. I so wanted to sew on this card but my sewing machine has an issue - it is a computerized machine - so I am afraid to even think of what it might cost - I guess I will call the vendor with the message and see if they can tell me anything - it may be cheaper to just buy an inexpensive machine for my card making and keep it in the basement where I make my cards. I actually ended up doing hand sewing on this card. I wanted the lace on both sides and so had to baste it onto my strip of tea dyed muslin.
To make my tea dyed muslin, I just tear narrow strips of unbleached muslin, brew up some tea - two tea bags to about a cup of water, let it steep for awhile, and then just place my strips in the tea. I let them sit in the tea for awhile and then I will rinse them, wring them out and let them dry. They end up with such a nice color and I love the look on cards. I also tea dyed my lace.
This card was going to be a baby boy card but as it evolved and I kept adding things - it is now a baby girl card - luckily I know a couple baby girls who are going to be born this year. But - I still need that baby boy card. Maybe I will go for a clean and simple style for that one.
This card is based off the sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You. A fun sketch which is really not that difficult to create with - I like sketches like that. It also satisfies the challenge on Moxie Fab for Shabby/Vintage. Paper Crafts is introducing their new publication "Card Style" - I can't wait to see that issue.
Everyone have a wonderful evening. I hope to make another card - maybe that little boy card.
