Sewing Themed Birthday Card

Good morning.  I hope you are well today.  I have a card to share that I made for my sister-in-law   It was her birthday yesterday so it's safe to share this now.

She loves sewing and needlework so that was the theme for this card.


I have used:
Distress oxide blended background using Faded Jeans, Salvaged Patina and Kitsch Flamingo.
I have sewn a piece of acetate on top to create a pocket.  I don't think I have ever sewn as straight as that...
 I have put sequins, paper cotton reels and paper buttons inside the acetate pocket.  
With my cricut I have print and cut a sewing machine (sewing machine, cotton reels and buttons are part of a sewing clipart collection from AnneIllustration over on Etsy)
I created and cut the word birthday three times out of white card using my cricut and then glued the cuts together. I also created an offset of birthday, cut this from vellum and layered this underneath.
The white embossed 'Wishing you a Happy' is from the Woodware Birthday Strips stamp set.


Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.

See you soon x

I love sewing too and there are so many wonderful details on this card. I love how you put the vellum behind the sentiment - I must try that as it is so effective. Thanks for taking part at Allsorts challenge.

What a fantastic sewing-themed birthday card, I'm amazed by the background and the scenery you've created. The sewing machine is a perfect centerpiece, and I love how you combined it with matching embellishments. Especially the sequins seem to create a cheerful atmosphere as they look like soap bubbles to me. I guess your sister in law must have been ecstatic to receive such a personalized birthday greeting. Thanks for joining the Alphabet challenge.

Hugs, Veronika
