Here is my card. The sponsor is Stitchy Bear and I used Sewing which is one of the many lovely silhouette digital stamps available from them. I decided to make it into a background pattern by copying it all over the page and changing the colour on all but one per row. I printed it on parchment and stitched it to some striped card. I cut out a dressmaker's dummy, reels and buttons using a Tim Holtz Sizzix die. I added thread to the reels and buttons, and a piece of pretty fabric tied round the dummy with a piece of ribbon. Finally I cut a Spellbinders Nestabilities label and stamped Birthday Wishes from a Debbi Moore set. All ink is Memento, which I used to distress the paper and card and different die cuts. As soon as I uploaded the photo I realised I had forgotten to use some special ribbon that I had been going to use, so I will have to make another version! I also want to decorate this inside. It reminds me of when I was at home with young children and I used to make their clothes and toys, and even did a City and Guilds Fashion course but only the first year. I had my own dressmaker's dummy then.
So hop on over and see what the others have done, and enter your make to win a Stitchy Bear voucher.
