You're Sew Special

Hi Everyone! Happy Memorial Day weekend! I created this card for Lucy's Digi Challenge. I've been wanting to try this Hero Arts DigiKit so her challenge was a good opportunity.

I paper pieced the sewing machine with a mix of patterned and solid card stock. I used colored pencils to add a touch of shading. The card stock fabric was hand cut with a slight taper toward the machine and a wave at the bottom. I threaded the machine with red embroidery floss and then continued it with three stitches on the card stock fabric. To create the stitches I pierced the card stock with my actual sewing machine then hand stitched the floss. I finished up the card with a few black gems, black machine stitching and a big glossy red button.

Thank you Lucy for the fun challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
