As you can see, I got out my sewing machine--more on that later. I wanted to create a "whimsical" look with the stitching to add to the "flow" of the dots in the patterned paper (plus, then you can't see how I can't sew a straight line!). Isn't that paper cool? I was lucky enough to win that several months back. It is from Cosmo Cricket. This is the first time I've used it and I LOVE it!
Stitching on cards is a great way to add texture without adding bulk! Of course, I did have to add a little bulk to this card, LOL!! The buttons and the popped up frame add just a little dimension while still keeping the card simple.
I inked up the "Dot Spot" stamp with PTI's Spring Rain ink and then dabbed just a little bit of Palette Reflection Blue on top of it to add some depth.
Also, you might have noticed that I have a new blinkie in my sidebar. I am now in a PTI blog group! I am really excited about this! We'll challenge and motivate each other and support each other as well. You may hear me referring to them now and this is what I am talking about when you hear "Papertrey Paper Dolls"!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy your weekend!
