Thanks SEW much! by Deanna M
Now that the gift giving is over it is time to thank all our loved ones for the generosity. Today I have a fun play on words Thank You card.
I started with white card stock cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. I added a dark blue mat cut at 4 1/4" X 5 3/8" then my patterned paper mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4". All of my patterned paper is from an American Crafts 6" X 6" paper pad called Family Ties. Check with Kim, I am sure she can order it for you.
I wanted to create a patchwork quilt background for my sewing machine. So, I cut a piece of golden paper at 3 1/2" X 4 3/4". I then cut each of my little squares at 1 1/16" X 1 1/2". I used a bit of Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive to adhere the squares to my gold mat and then ran a zig zag stitch around all the squares. I then adhered that to my card using some foam squares.
I cut my sewing machine from the Nifty Fifties Cricut Cartridge at 3". After adhering the layers together, I added it to the front of the quilted mat again using foam squares. My sentiment is stamped with some Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
