Now, I learnt a LOT from making this card, like.. how to line up an embossing folder properly when using it twice on one sheet. Like.. how TGF images don't really take well to a vintage-y look.. or do they? I haven't quite decided. Like.. how crap I am at stitching in a straight line and I don't have enough patience with my sewing machine. Oh.. and also.. like.. how I should use embossing a LOT more on my projects.
Meet 1 of 3 Dressy Anya's. Isn't she gorgeous. I gotta say, I love her hat.. and if my blender pen had a finer point, the weaving detail on her hat would look so much better! The sentiment I used on the card is from a Sale-a-bration set from SU! called So Happy For You. Its a lovely set! :) I stamped it in Soft Suede ink. LOVE that colour.. but then again, there is not a lot from SU! that I don't love!!
Well, that was my attempt at a quilted looking card, not sure how well I've done.. but I like it.. I think. The more I look at it the more I'm getting to like it anyway. Oh, and just for reference, the papers I used are from Sasafrass Indie Girl collection, and the embossing folder is called Snow Cap, from Sizzix for Basic Grey. I added a little Old Paper DI to the raised portion of the embossing to give it a little more definition.
I would like to enter this card into Saturday Challenge - Patchwork Background
