My Mothers Day Card

I thought I'd share my Mothers Day card I made for my Mom.

I cut the dress form and thread with my Tim Holtz sewing room die out of a coke can! I can't believe how easy it was to cut with my Vegabond, like butta!! I then ran it thou his texture fade, pattern and stitches set, then I colored it with copper paint dabber. I decorated it with some lace and attached twine to my thread spool. The punch I used was one of Martha Stewarts.

I think this qualifies for a couple of challenges.

Simon Says challenge (anything goes)

Inspiration Emporium (use some sort of packaging)

Let me know what you think, I really love your comments. Shari

  9. A lovely way to use packaging. Soft drink cans are a fabulous item to emboss, but I haven't tried cutting with a die cut, so shall have to give that a try. Thanks for the inspiration :)
