Oh Sew Suite

This is a shameless CASE of a card in the Occasions Mini. It uses just about everything offered in the Oh Sew Suite: Sweet Stitches DSP, Sew Suite Stamp Set, Sweet Stitches Fabric and these Fab-u-lous Fabric Brads. They were the hit of the workshop.

Where's the fabric on this card you might ask? It is the Very Vanilla and Pretty in Pink strip on the right hand side. One of the prints in the fabric has different styles of stitching on it. Pick a stitch design that you like and cut it out. A secret for adding the fabric to the card, adhere it to a thin piece of cardstock first. I used the Anywhere Glue Stick (it was my first time using it.) If you want a clean edge to the fabric, adhere the edges to the back of the cardstock. If you want a rougher edge, leave the edges loose and pull the fabric threads off.

The sewing machine is two-toned. I stamped one machine in Daffodil Delight and the other in Melon Mambo. Trim all of the Pink machine and just the top half of the Daffodil machine. Adhere the Daffodil top to the back of the Pink machine. Cut out the Daffodil machine knob and add it to the front of the Pink machine. It adds such great dimension to the card.

Yes, this card is a lot of work...but it's worth the blood, sweat and tears. So many elements, but they all work so well together.
