For my card today, I decided to use a quilting technique with the top note die and make a sewing collage . I punched 12 squares of designer paper, using a 1 1/4" square punch.

I taped them onto a piece of cardstock and then ran it though my Big Shot machine. It makes such a lovely quilt pattern. I used an embossing folder on the card base.  

I stamped the sewing machine and measuring tape in soft suede ink. The scissors are stamped in rose red ink. I fussy cut these. Used a button die and cut the buttons from rose red cardstock.

That's my card for today. See you back here tomorrow with another sample.

Here is a link to all the blogs on the hop today:

  12. Sew nice. Especially like the quilting. Wish I knew how to sew. My mother was a wonderful seamstress. I took Home Ec sewing in high school.
    Had jury duty summons today. 25 people were selected. I was left in remaining 28 group and after waiting for some time we were told we were not needed & could leave.
