Sewing Themed Pop Up Card

I wanted the inside of this card to look like a room.

I tried to make the top of the card look like crown molding, so I added some score lines to a cream piece of cardstock.  I think the effect is great, but of course it didn't photograph worth a hoot.

The desk and sewing machine are both Silhouette studio cut files.  I had to draw the thread on the sewing machine myself because the cut was just too tiny and didn't look right.  

I wanted to place to write my message to fit into the "room" theme like the crown molding and such so I used a couple Spellbinders dies and hope it looks like a rug on the floor.

I was really careful with my patterned paper choices to try and look like a wall and floor design.  The papers are from the Bo Bunny Garden Girl 6 by 6 pad.

Here's the outside of the card.

I really wanted to stick with the sewing theme.  I chose a patterned paper from the same pad that reminded me of a quilt.  It has all these great squares with designs in them just like a quilt.

I used my sewing machine to do some real stitching in brown thread.

I used the same Spellbinders dies as the inside of the card, and then popped them up for a touch of dimension.  I did some faux stitching with a white gel pen and stamped a Hero Arts sentiment from their set, Simple Things.

I think this would be a fun housewarming card, or just to give to another crafty friend.

Thanks for visiting!
