"Hello! I made this card for the Stamp TV Free for all Friday Challenge: Sew Sentimentally Embossed. The challenge was to make a card with the sentiment as focal point, and include some kind of sewing and embossing.
I liked the idea of having different size squares of different patterned paper, and putting it together with stitching so this is what I came up with:
Since one of the pieces of paper I chose had buttons on it, I thought it would be a nice touch to add buttons to the card. I ended up using only one, but it is strategically placed! LOL! I did not want to over-crowd the card.
The embossing part of the challenge I almost forgot. I had thought of embossing the sentiment but I had technical difficulties! I did not have one of those anti-static pouches and I tried the fabric softener sheet as a substitute (I read that somewhere) but it did not work. So it's plan B for the embossing! I decided to emboss the oval with little dots, which actually complement the dots on one of the paper patterns I used.
To make the sentiment stand out I mounted the oval on foam squares.
Thanks for stopping by! "
Have a bright day!
