So Sew Special

Hi Everyone! I have another card to share using the Hero Arts Sew Crafty digi kit. This time I used spools of thread from the kit plus a sketch that Shari has up on the Hero Arts blog this week.


I wrapped each of the spools with a bright color of embroidery floss then stitched coordinated Xs along the inner border. The white center piece was cut out of some extra fabric I had laying around. I taped it on card stock before cutting it out so that it cut nice and straight.



This card is off in the mail to my Grandma who loves sewing and is SO special. :) Hope you are having a great day!


Materials:

Stamps: Hero Arts Sew Crafty Digi Kit, All Occasion Messages
Paper: Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist, Kraft, Spring Moss
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, PTI Tea Dye Duo
Other: Embroidery Floss, Pinking Shears, Rectangle Scallop Nestabilities
