I love to sew on cards, and am happy to share to encourage you to sew on cards too! On my sidebar, there is a link to Sewing on Cards- the Basics to get you started. What next? Well, head on over and check out the August Papers and Pixels- they have published a tutorial on Sewing on cards-Written by ME (and thankfully edited by Laura- Thanks Laura)! There is also info by another author on sewing digitally- which I do not have a clue about- I cannot wait to sip my tea and read it cover to cover.
I created a couple of cards with basic sewing tonight- the first uses a simple straight stitch:
The image is a digital image from McMahon Five Designs is one of a set of Sewing Sentiments. I colored the image with SU markers that matched the Paisley Petals DSP. The background is a Technique Junkies Technique called Collaged Circles. I made the Bakers Twine with plain cord and a Copic marker- I found a tutorial HERE.
Next, I made a card with a Zig-Zag stitch.
How fun is this image? It is a freebie until Tuesday 8/16 at Dude Time Doodles Challenge Blog- then it will go into the store. This is Gavin the Ghost. I used Vintage Silver Lustre cardstock to print out this image the two flourishes and the sentiment- here is a close up view:
