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.
