Dares' up - Sew look!

Oh my! That was my first words as seeing Kathys [url=]Dare[/url] or something to that end anyway. Hmmmm a card to incorporate sewing, after last weeks kitchen dare. And if theres one thing I am worse at then cooking its chuffing sewing!!!

So here's this weeks offerings:

Card One Santa.

I love this little santa piccy. It was part of a scrapbooking paper by Paper Wishes and I cut his square out and added a little glitter onto his hat band, pompom and mitten band. Then mounted him onto green bazzil card cut into a tag shape , then again on a red one. Then came the sewing part, and many minutes and pricked fingers later I added in REAL SEWING!!!! 4 crosses in each corner, a real sewn on button and the stitched words "with love" all mounted on a dark green bazzil card base.

Card Two - Cute as a Button

Sorry for the photograph of this card, the flash sent it silly but without it, it all went a bit wobbly.

This one was made on a plain white cardstock base. I then attached 2 strips of ribbon down the card (ok i glued them rather than sewing) I then stamped and double mounted a baby footprint stamp by hero arts. The stripy paper is MMKids. I then used white rubons for the wording, swapping the O for a mini white button and mounted that on the stripey paper too.

To finish it off I added sewn on buttons at the top of the ribbon and 3 down the side of the card and tied off with white embroidery thread. Oooh I also lightly rubbed a little blue chalk all over the card.

So lets get going and I cant wait to see your cards. Dont forget that if you dont have blogger you can now email your cards to us at and we will include you in the gallery.

Needles poised? Ready... Steady.... SEW!
