Cherry created two cards that will get your creative juices flowing. Here is what she used:
vintage, sewing tape
vintage sewing notions
Tools Used: Hot glue, Beacon adhesive
Using a simple cardstock base folded in half and stitched up the sides to create a pocket to tuck a handmade card and treat in. Using a mix of old and new to create a unique and personal gift for someone special! Sticking with the ivory and black color theme looks great and ties it all together, letting the buttons and vintage accents stand out.
You can use 4×6 file folders to make a great card or make your own with the cardstock papers. They are great for holding a favorite treat or a little private message.
Don’t be afraid to use actual sewing notions on your projects. Keep an eye out at your local flea market or garage sale for a bucket of buttons and notions or maybe an old sewing box filled with goodies.
You can cut spools of thread in half and rewind them with the tread and make two objects to add that will glue easily onto your cards or project or fussy cut a printed paper one and make it cute and really simple.
If the black and ivory looks like it needs a little color, grab some glimmer mist, shake it up and apply with a brush in a watercolor style painting and you will simply love the results, we like to call it Adult Coloring with a Brush.
