Sewn cards

I wanted to combine my love of sewing with cardmaking.  I found these fab stamps from clear art stamps and combining them with some Tim Holtz papers have made my first sewn patchwork cards.  I hope more will follow soon.

I deliberately chose this picture because it shows the dimension and cracked clear embossing on the tag better.  The greeting I have chosen for inside is 'a family is a patchwork of love' from creative expressions making it an ideal Mothers day card.  I Also used aged mahogany distress ink on the cardstock and vintage ribbon plus some sari silk which co ordinated beatifully.

A more masculine version
