Sew inspired

Ok, I think everyone and their brother saw how cool Gina K's tutorial was on the sew mini machine. Well, this inspired me to get out my mothers old Sears sewing machine, weighing in at 25 pounds and sew on a card. As you can see, I kept it pretty straight! Next time, I'm gonna have to go bolder and do those zig zags!

The bottom left hand corners are chipboard that I inked up and sprayed with a glossy glaze. The card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, and I sewed the bottom shut to form a pocket. The main panel is stamped with chalk ink in azurite and then embossed. I also added color and ep around the outside edges. When I was cutting the designer paper for this card, little did I know that the swirls would line up so well! Call that lucky!

I missed Gina's tutorial--thanks for posting this card! I've never tried sewing on my cards either, and I'd really like to give it a whirl.

Have a wonderful weekend!!
