Sew Special!

Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!!

In 2011, MFT is working harder than ever to inspire you, and we have come up with something we think you'll really enjoy. Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a new monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month, we're all making cards featuring Fun Folds! Visit Kim's Blog for a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge!

I headed on over to the Resources Section of SCS to pick out a fold for my card today.  There are SO many choices, but I finally decided to go with the Folded Paper Frame.  SUPER easy to create and I just LOVE the final result!

I pulled out the FABULOUS Sew Nifty set from My Favorite Things and stamped the sewing machine in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a piece of patterned paper.  All of the patterned paper used on my card is Lost and Found/Union Square from My Minds Eye.  I used another pattern to create the Folded Paper Frame for around the focal image.

I added a border of another pattern using the Simply Scallops Die-Namics, and I added some lace trim and Charcoal Baker's Twine for a bit of embellishment.  Using the Sew Nifty Die-Namics, I die cut the scissors out of Black Licorice Cardstock and hung them off the twine.  Love that!  Simple black pearls in each corner, and some machine stitching, complete the front.


For the inside, I added some more patterned paper, and under the panel for a message, I stamped "You Really Are Sew Special".  Some more sewing and the inside is complete.  The card base is Fossil Cardstock.


Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:



Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
