Thanks Sew Much

Hi all! Hope your week is going well! I am making some Thank You cards for several people who were so thoughtful and caring after my surgery. They brought me enough food so my hubby didn't have to cook for a whole week! (He's so lucky) It's funny because he's a Dietary Manager and knows how to cook at work, but somehow always sneaks out of cooking at home! LOL! I got these stamps free when I purchased the Cardmaking magazine. I never order magazines, so I was super excited to get something free in it! I was trying to go with a vintage feel. I used the Antiquity papers from Paper Studio. Stamped the images with StazOn.....grrrrr.....I forgot to use my Memento ink. When I went to color them with my copics it started smearing and turning my nibs black. I don't think it is noticible though. I cut the scallop edge with my Sizzix and the cirlce and plaque shapes with my Cricut. I machine sewed around all the edges. Added some lace and ruler trim to the bottom. I made a ribbon flower by sewing the pleated ribbon and dyed it with Tea Dye distress ink. Also, distressed around the images. Then finished by adding a couple of buttons, cheese cloth and pearls. I hope they enjoy their cards! I really enjoyed making them!
