Today I am sharing a simple card and normally these cards are very hard for me but I think the paper helped me out a lot. I used paper from the DCWV Chickadee Stack and the Flower 2 Die from Elizabeth Craft Designs. To glue the whole card I used the Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive and to glue the flower I used the Tombow Foam Tabs and I curled the petals to give it even more dimension. This is a A2 Size card which could work great for Operation Write Home and talking about OWH this Saturday we are hoping with them so do not miss the fun, tutorials and prizes!!
I believe that the secret with a good simple card is the details and that is why I used the machine stitching. For the blue 1/2 inch stripe I used a pleating technique using my scoreboard and scoring at 1/2″, 1 1/2″, 2″, 3″, 3 1/2″, 4 1/2″, 5″, 6″, 6 1/2″, 7 1/2″, 8″, 9″, 9 1/2″, 10 1/2″ and 11″. When I stitch on top of the pleating I move the wheel on the side manually to avoid breaking the needle or having problems with my stitching.
We hope to see you here on Saturday for the OWH hop!!
