You're 'Sew' Sweet!

This card was published in the Cricut Magazine!  (August issue)


All of the cuts came from the Country Life cartridge:
Sewing machine table - 3 1/2"
Yarn balls - 1" (I cut off the crochet hooks)


I covered the sewing machine and black parts of table with glossy accents.  I used Ranger inks (Tea Dye & Walnut) to ink all of the pieces before I glued them together.


The drawer knobs are just black brads and all of the cardstock is Crate Paper.  I also used Dimensional squares to pop everything off the card base. 


Have a wonderful day!!

  24. This is fantastic! The layered details are amazing...it must have taken you hours and hours to make this card! I love how you used actual sewing on the card to reinforce the theme. Gorgeous.
