I found this Stamping Bella image and sentiment lurking on the bookshelf the other day, I'd previously stamped it and coloured it I think with the Dreamees' blender pen and their dinky inky ink pads and then abandoned it!
I rummaged about and found this soft yellow gingham paper in my stash (think it may have been Craftwork Cards) which matched perfectly this left over card from Lidl. I simply trimmed down the image and added some faux stitching to fit on a 6x6 card blank. Originally, this wasn't my intended layout, but I kept messing up my measuring of the yellow card and as I had a limited amount, it evolved into this. The yellow either side of the gingham are actually narrow strips as I didn't have a wide enough strip and I was worried that the paper would sag in the middle if I cut it in half to tuck it either side. Yay, for my new paper trimmer cutting fine strips! Quite pleased with this card, It actually turned out better than my original plan!
Oh Cara this is a wow card for me! Love it to bits. Happy crafting, Angela xXxReplyDelete
