Fun with cards
It's that time of year when I start going through my stash and try to use up as many scraps as I can. I use most of them to make cards and allow myself to play and experiment with new techniques. It is very freeing and fun and from time to time I stumble on to something cool. This card has a lot going for it but doesn't look over done to me. It has popped up items on the scallop, stickles, stamping, beads and my latest obsession sewing. The Janome sewing machine is the greatest! It is not for skilled seamstress' mind you, strictly paper and small craft projects. It is small and light weight, not so cumbersome you will never get it out of the closet. It does two types of stitches in different sizes. The cost is around $100.00 but watch for sales at Jo Ann's for half price. I just love to hear the wurrr of that little machine!
