Just Saying Hi


I wanted to share a card I was able to sneak in some time to make with my new Hero Arts stamp set this week. I'm not usually one for vintage images but something about these telephones just got to me. I embossed the telephone on the patterned paper (from Making Memories) with detail embossing powder which tends to come out with a more mat finish. I like that it's not super shiny and thick.

I've also been slowly working each week to improve my abysmal sewing skills. I gave zig zag a try with this card and had things go a bit crazy behind the ribbon. But as often happens, mistakes make for great opportunities to correct. I added the eyelet and some thick ribbon and you'd never have known my sewing was crazy crooked under there unless I told you. Which I of course did because I'm honest like that. Happy Friday peeps and thanks for stopping by!

Hi Sarah! Love this card!! The patterned paper looks great & love the vintage phone image. You've inspired me to give the sewing machine another go. I've not touched mine for ages. Have a lovely day!!

Love the phone on that fun, colourful pattern! And brilliant save on the crazy stitching - that big eyelet rocks!

Hi Sarah!

Love this card!! Good thing there's ribbon, 'cause now the card AND the sewing are just perfect!! I've been thinking for quite a while about getting a sewing machine as well, 'cause like here, it always adds just the perfect finishing touch!!! Great card, Sarah!

Hugs, Wendy
