A Card and A Shopping Spree

May 12, 2008 Sarah Coggins

I’m momentarily addicted to cards. 😉 Created this one late Saturday night using Making Memories products. Inspired by May 14 of dw2008 to stitch a title. Also by Shirley’s amazing work. I was already in awe of her hand stitching on projects, but even more so after creating this simple card.

A close-up of my hand stitching:

Supplies: Making Memories patterned paper and stitches; Chelsea Studio font.

The patterned paper is from a shopping “spree” at Big Lots Saturday. I bought 3 packs of American Crafts rub-ons, 2 packs of American Crafts stickers and the Making Memories patterned paper pack for $11. Now, if only my Big Lots stores would carry the American Crafts albums….

    I do use my sewing machine on some paper projects, but this one was hand stitched. I made a template in Word and used a tiny bit of adhesive to temporarily hold it to the patterned paper. Then I used the Making Memories paper piercer to make holes through both. Removed the template, stitched and glued to the card. :)
