I Miss You


This card is made based off of Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I know I am a little late, but at least I did do one this time! I'm going to try to start to do them every weekend, but with the holidays approaching, that may be a bit too much of a commitment! I liked the layout a lot with the double scalloped edge. Instead of the circle, I used a large button. The pattern paper is a special handmade paper I purchased at Oblation in Portland this summer. The paper store was similar to Paper-Source, but more of a 'mom and pop.'

To create this card:
  1. Make card base (using vanilla cardstock) by cutting cardstock to 4.25" x 11", then score at 5.5".
  2. Cut brown cardstock to 4.25" x 5.5" (to use as the card base so stitching will not show through card or you can trim your card in brown cardstock and allow stitching to show).
  3. Trim berry sorbet cardstock to approx. 3.5" x 4.5".
  4. Using the scallop edge punch, scallop both 3.5" edges.
  5. Trim pattern paper to approx. 3.5" x 4.5" and adhere to the center of the berry sorbet cardstock.
  6. With a leftover scrap of berry sorbet, adhere a strip to the center.
  7. Stamp a sentiment on the berry sorbet cardstock.
  8. Thread button with twine and adhere to berry sorbet strip
  9. Add rhinestones to the center of the flowers on pattern paper.
  10. Using a sewing machine, stitch around the edges of the brown cardstock.
  11. Pop the scalloped edge focal point off of the brown cardstock.
  12. Adhere brown cardstock to vanilla card base.
Today is election day, so please do not forget to vote! This could be my last posting for this week because I am off to Orlando/Disney World for the remainder of the week and weekend! I should be back to post some photos at the least!
