Heart 2 Heart – Nip and Tuck

This week at the Heart 2 Heart challenge sewing real or faux has to be included on the card. I used one of my favorite CTMH retired stamp sets on the front of the card from the Find Your Style set. I included a faux dry embossed row of cross stitches to the left of stamped image. When you open the gate fold card You discover I used the new CTMH Puns stamp set with the sewing machine and hand wrapped to bobbins with baker’s twine for my sewing! I hope you enjoy the card. I used CTMH slate ink to compliment the CTMH Avonlea paper to give it a soft look and not the stark look of black or a real dark ink.

    This is one of my favorite stamp sets, too! So appropriate for a card using stitching! The vintage feel of Avonlea compliments it well.
