A Stitch In Time


I'm back! This will be my last post for today. This is a large card measuring 5 x 6 3/4. I don't usually make cards this large but sometime it just calls for a large one. I started out cutting lime , lavender and turquoise into strips. (They measure 1-1/2 x 3;1-3/4x2; 1x3; 1-3/4 x 1; 4-1/2x1-1/2; 2-1/2 x 1-3/4; 2 x 1-3/4. I trimmed the sides to even it up. Then I stamped using staz-on. Glued them onto card stock. Using my stamping up mat pack, punched holes along and then sewed them by hand with gold thread. Glued buttons here and there. Attached that to black card stock then attached that to the card. Hope you like my card, it's some thing different I haven't done in awhile. Thanks for dropping by and yall come back!
