I have Blog candy HERE- it ends tonight- I will be home from work ~ 9PM EST, so By 10 PM.....
I have been inspired to make cards for Breast Cancer Awareness this month. McMahon Five Designs new BCA freebie is released today, so I used it for my card.
Such a fun image, isn't it??? You can find it HERE in the McMahon Five Designs store in the Breast Cancer charity. I used Mountain Rose cardstock- love the color and ohhh so shimmery- it is one of my absolute favorite cardstocks.....!!! For the next layer- I want to show you a sewing tip- you can use your straight edge punches around curves- just like you are sewing in a sleeve or around a neck line.......
First, I drew a circle for my Sketch from Card Patterns:
Next, I punched out the straight edged punch. I liked how this design goes with the tail of the bird:
How you ask???
Next is the test.......you may need to practice a few times if this is new to you.......
I added pink silk ribbon and more lace to the side with a Zig Zag stitch and added more pearls. I added one more little embellishment- I made a decorated Pretty as we call it in the Technique Junkies- that is the flower which is colored with Pink Copic markers.
My tutorial showing a straight edge punch as the outer border of a card is HERE.
The technique also works with lace- that tutorial is HERE
If you would like to see more samples- the technique was the Monday Technique on Splitcoaststampers- you can look at the technique gallery TLC320 for more inspiration HERE
For basic information regarding sewing on cards, HERE is that tutorial.
