Sew Sweet Card

Hello everyone! I'm going to show you a cute card I made with one of my favorite paper packs, Cosmo Cricket "Material Girl." But first, just some thoughts...our weather in OK and surrounding states is getting pretty scary. You get use to being in "tornado alley" and sometimes we take it for granted when sirens go off. But thinking that Joplin, MO is like 2.5/3 hrs away and what happened to them, We've had to go over the family plan of action with the kids. I've updated our disaster hadn't been updated since we had our little guy. It is just scary and sad stuff to see. May God be with all the people who have experienced these disasters.

So, I found a Cosmo Cricket Material Girl paper pack marked down at H/L (they had 1 more that I'm seriously thinking about getting.) Then, I found some of the same coordinating chipboard shapes on ebay. I saw a similar card in one of my card magazines and thought it was really cute.

5x7 premade Kraft card base.
Used 3 different papers from my pack. Cut 3 rectangles the same size--green gingham, the floral and the "stitched" paper. I glue the gingham to the back side of the floral, so it would be like double sided paper. Then, glued the stitched paper down, then the floral/gingham but left the one side unglued down. I cut down the middle of that and folded back the edges so it would look like cut fabric. I used some of the paper that looks like a ruler and cut a little of that for the end.

Nate's ABC's--Scissors cut at 4" in grey and black and cut 3x and layered on top for some thickness.
Heritage--The sewing machine was cut at 2.5 and 3x and glued together for thickness. Then, used marker to make the turn wheel black.

I used my fiskars tearing tool to tear a piece of paper and put under the sewing machine for any type of message to stamp later on it. Wanted it to look like a piece of fabric. The lacy decorative piece inside is a MS punch. Finally, adhered some chipboard buttons and flowers and "Sew Sweet."
