Sew Nifty Card

Hi all, so who's ready for another card??? We got the cutest stamp and die set in from My Favorite Things and I just fell in love with the little scissors!!! So I decided to use it for this post.....and I even used my favourite colour.........Purple!!! So onto today's post..........

Products Used:
Cardstock:Black, Dark Purple, Light Purple, Green and Ranger Metal Foil Sheets
Inks: Ranger Archival Ink Black, Black StazOn, Tim Holtz Distess Inks- Dusty Concord and Milled Lavendar, Tsukineko GlazOn and Ranger Alcohol Ink Nature Walk
Misc.: Tim Holtz Hangers, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder- Measure by Measure, Seam Binding, Black Floss, Needle, Tim Holtz Ruler and misc. brad

So first I stamped the dress form, then I cut the foil with the dies and then I applied the Glaz On, (this way when I apply the alcohol ink it won't react with the StazOn) now I applied the alcohol ink to the dress form. I just love these dies, they are just soo cute!!! For my tutorial on how to line up your dies and stamps click here. I stamped the lt. purple cst with the stamps and both distress inks. I embossed the green cst with the measuring tape folder and inked it with the dusty concord. I dyed the seam binding with the distress ink pads and crumpled it up, then I dried it with my heat tool and adhered it to the top above the embossing. I stamped the saying on the punched shape and sewed around it adding a tiny bow at the corner. I hung the 3 little die cuts from the hanger with jump rings and added a small piece of the dyed seam binding. Then I used a brad to attach it. Well that's pretty much it for this until next time......................Have a great week!!!

Great card, Kim! Love the scissors and other embellishments and of course, the colour purple.
The background was great, too!!!
