Birds of a Feather .....

This card was made for today's CRAFT challenge.

The theme was sewing/stitches, and as you can probably gather from my submission - sewing is not my strong point!

To start, I took a white card blank and stamped it with the Hero Arts Arrows cling background stamp in Versamagic ink (Wheat). This ink gives a lovely subtle background.

I set the card blank aside to dry.

Using the new Hero Arts clear stamp set "Sundrifter Love This" I stamped the circle onto a strip of Kraft cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. I stamped and embossed three feathers onto the circle to give the look of a Dreamcatcher.

At the top and bottom of the circle I stamped "you" and "me" in Memento Rich Cocoa.

To create the scalloped bottom edge I used Spellbinders Labels Thirteen.  I trimmed the Kraft cardstock slightly narrower than the die so that I could slide just the bottom of the card under the cutting edge and die cut it.

I took some scrap vellum and stamped and embossed my sentiment. I trimmed the vellum to fit the width of my Kraft panel. Using some repositionable glue, I positioned the vellum on the Kraft panel and poked some stitching holes with a piercing tool. I then used these holes to sew my vellum strip onto the Kraft cardstock.

To decorate, I used some twine, a wooden button and some 3mm white pearls from Creative Expressions.

I attached the panel to the front of the card with foam tape.

I hope you like this card, with its neutral colours I think it is suitable for a man or a woman.
