Sewing theme card

Its snowing again here in Sheffield tonight. After a mild dry day, a lot of the snow has melted this afternoon, so I suppose we have room for more. lol I had already planned a crafting day and as a lot of the stuff was still out from yesterday it would have been a shame not too! lol 

 My card this evening has a sewing theme, its great having all my stamp sorted!
The pictures not great as the light was poor, I have gone close up, might try and take a better one tomorrow.

For the background I stuck a piece of dress makers paper pattern to a square of white card. I then randomly stamped all over. I stamped some more sewing images on white card, mounted them inked with antique linen distress ink and add dark brown cardstock.

The recipe for this card is:
Main card: Craft Den white 8" x 8"
Backing paper: White card and stamped paper pattern
Stamps: Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz, PaperArtsy sentiment.
Ink Pad: Ranger Archival Coffee, Jet Black, Distress Ink pad Antique Linen
Bigz Die: Ateration Sewing theme
Ebellishements: Ribbon slider, ribbon, pins and muslin from statsh
All products used available from the Craft Den

Keep warm and happy crafting hugs Lynne xox

  3. Hi Lynne, your card is beautiful, love how you did the dress forms in two colours - very clever and very striking on the card. The background is lovely too. Hugs, Anne x

  4. Lovely collage effect, and the red from the two stuck pins are a stroke of genius - perfect.

    Hope the snow doesn't cause you too much disruption,
