It wasn't long till I was regretting it, funny how all the ideas you get in your head just won't make it onto paper sometimes isn't it?
Anyway this was my card. All the letters are made from various ribbons, folded (or otherwise persuaded .....) into shape and sewn by machine onto some thin pink card. I used different stitches and wasn't too precious about how neat it looked going more for a "relaxed" look - well that's my excuse anyway. After the sewing I cut them out quite close to the stitches ready to be fixed onto the card. the "O" is made with loops of 4 differnet ribbons sewn together then a cute flower shaped button sewn in the middle (it hides all the messy stitching too) and tied with a dotty pink narrow ribbon. . I used a DL sized card - it had to be big to get all the letters on! The edges have strips of Junkitx Hip Hop Skinny Stripes paper along the edges - I love this paper.
The tag is machine sewn - a chance to try out the memory in my sewing machine which lets me load several stitches/letter patterns in and then just put my foot down - cool or what?. The little primas are sewn with bead centres and the button in the centre of the big Prima came from a pack of similar ones but I can't remember who makes them, sorry!
With a bit of luck I might even get rund to doing another card with sewing stuff on - I'm sure those ideas that are swimming around the goldfish bowl I call my head could actually get out and show themselves if I only force them.....
Don't forget you don't have to have a blog to play along now, we've got a gallery and an email address for you to send your cards to - check the Daring Cardmakers Blog for all the info. Now I'll sit back and look forward to seeing your "Just Sew" stories, shall I?
