Here are a couple birthday cards I made recently, I couldn't show them until now because the birthday girls had not received them yet....
antique sewing machine image once again from The Graphics Fairy-love her! The birthday girl loves sewing and has one of our grandmother's original foot powered Singer sewing machines. This time the colors for the card were more fall-ish which is a lot more challenging for me. The base of this card was made with a piece of pre-embossed Core'dinations paper, this stuff is so much fun! I dyed some of my seam binding green and pleated it to the front of the card. The dark purple flower was cut from natural muslin and dyed by me once again. I just cut out 4 circles and made a box flower with them.
These cards were such fun to make and to challenge myself to get out of my usual rut. The hardest part of all this was just picking out paper....it took me days!
Hope you have a fun and restful weekend!
