Little Dreamer !

Remember the prismacolor tutorial I did a couple of weeks ago onto kraft paper??

Well finally I got around to using the image to make it into a card.

I have had some fabric quarters sitting on my window shelf looking pretty for many months now...but the red gingham one really caught my eye and was begging to be used up :))

So I made a black card blank and then cut my gingham square just a little smaller than my card base. I stitched it to the card and then frayed the edges a little, so that it actually looked like fabric. I have to say that stitching fabric was way harder than paper! Sounds silly ...but it moves about a whole lot more and is I found it much harder to keep a straight therefore the card has a VERY homemade feel about it now!

Anyway, I used the image that I had coloured from my tutorial: here, and mounted it onto black cardstock and machine stitched the layers together. (much easier this time just stitching the card!).

The flowers are from my stash and the sparkly brads I have had for years! The sentiment is included with the 'Little Dreamer' set from The Greeting Farm, available from Quixotic Paperie. You canfind the heart pins here.

This card will be available in my Etsy shop later today!

Thank you all for your kind comments. they are very much appreciated :)

It looks pretty much straight to me, so you must be good with said sewing machine. Gorgeous card, the gingham and the image really work well together.

Kraft & Gingham - what more could a girl want?? I cannot sew on fabric........wonder if I might have better success with paper? Anyhow I love that strawberry dangling with the black ribbon & those pins, Just a real treat.
