A Crafter's Card

Happy Friday everyone! Can you believe we are almost halfway through April already? Here's a crafty card using a crafty lady, a seamstress! This elegant lady image stands out wonderfully on stunning papers from Paper Temptress. I stamped her on Neenah Solar White with a beautiful stamp called Fanciful Notions by Sweet Pea Stamps, once colored with Copic Markers, the image was cut out using Spellbinders Nestabilities and edged using Creamy Brown Colorbox Chalk on the edges.She's sewing in the image, which made her go perfectly with this border punch, using amazing looking textured ruche paper called Khaki Crepe. The card base is Epic Thick Black Columns. I also used creamy brown chalk on the edges to highlight the columned texture. The creamy brown matches the khaki crepe paper color very well.

This card would be just perfect for that sewing crafter in your life. Think of the quilt makers, stitchers, seamstresses,...I know so many talented ladies in that line of work. They would just love a card like this. Have a great weekend.

Project Materials: Cardstock (Paper Temptress); Stamp (Sweet Pea); Ink (Memento, Colorbox Chalk); Punch (EK Success); Die Cut (Spellbinders Nestabilities); Adhesives (Pop dots, Glue All); Color (Copic Markers);
