Thank You Card with a Sewing Theme

Thank You Card with a Sewing Theme
No Gravatar

This card was inspired by the cheerful American Crafts ribbon I received for Christmas.  When I tied the bow, the single sided ribbon showed as white on the right side tail.  To make it look cute, I adhered another piece of ribbon to it.  Can you see it?  🙂 I thought I’d reveal that secret to other card makers who may run into the same issue.  I love the look of a button attached to the knot on a tied bow, and this sewing theme card begged for it!

The cute green stamps on the green paper are from “Sew Lovely,” from Kelly-Marie Alvarez‘s Lawn Fawn store.  I found this cute sewing paper at Craft Warehouse on sale and I was happy that it went so well with the ribbon.  I hand wrote the sentiment and then used a Spellbinders die to cut the shape in my Cuttlebug machine and then rounded and inked the edges!

This bright-colored card makes me smile and I hope you enjoy it, too!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
