Hand-Stitched Gift

Hello,

I'm stopping by to share a card i made for The Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. When i saw that the photo inspiration had pin cushions in it, i knew exactly what stamp set i was going to use!! The Alley Way Stamps In Stitches set has a pin cushion, i pulled out a little snowflake paper to make a card to go along with a handmade stitch gift.

I started by stamping the pin cushion on a blue/grey snowflake pattern paper then cutting it out. I also stamped it on a tan snowflake patter paper, just cutting the cushion top out which i adhered to the blue/grey cushion.

I cut a stitched oval and then stamped the 'A Hand-Stitched Gift' sentiment. I added the pin cushion with foam tape, then set the oval aside. Next i added a strip of the blue/grey pattern paper along the right side, then added the tan snowflake paper to the rest of the card base.

I used a few snowflakes from the Winter's Butterflies set and stamped around where the edge of the oval would be. Next i added the oval with foam dots and for a final touch added a few matching enamel dots.

Oh, i almost forgot, i used the Gabfest set to spell out and stamp For You on the inside of the card. I also added a couple snowflakes!!
