One of a Kind – The Vintage Seamstress

Hi everyone!  I’m sitting here watching the rain come down, listening to an interview about reaching your full potential, and trying to come up with some fun little story with which to start this post…but nothing’s coming to me 😛  So I’ll jump right in. 

I started this card last week in the hopes of entering it in the Mojo Monday challenge and the Crafty Secrets linky party, but only finished it yesterday, far too late for either!  I’m still quite pleased with it, though, and hope you’ll enjoy it as well.  Take a look:

One of a Kind 1

 

I started by picking the tag and mannequin images from my Crafty Secrets “Sew Nice” Creative Scraps sheet.  Gorgeous vintage images.  Then I picked my One of a Kind sticker from my stash, grabbed a doily, and pulled out coordinating papers.  I stamped a damask pattern onto coral paper and clear embossed the design for an old, worn wallpaper kind of look, then inked up my doily with Vintage Photo distress ink and glued it onto the coral paper.  I wrapped some lace and satin ribbon around the coral paper, then layered the whole thing onto ivory cardstock and stitched around the edges.  Then came the distressing and more Vintage Photo ink around the edges 🙂  I layered the vintage images onto cardstock and stitched and distressed those edges as well, popped my sticker up on foam squares, and added a bow.  Then, inspiration struck and I stamped and fussy cut a little pair of scissors to hang from the tag.  I’m crazy about those little scissors.  

I was going to add buttons and other bits and bobs, but I forgot  decided I like it the way it is 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!  Don’t forget to check in tomorrow for Wedding Wednesday! Have a great day!
