Hello. Here's another birthday card from me. Seems like I only make stuff at the last minute when I really need it somewhat urgently for an upcoming occasion. Then I have to browse for sketches and color challenges. So this week I'm using the colors from the Play Date Cafe Challenge #115. And the Deconstructed Sketch No. 35.
Sister Stamps, so cute with the bowl cut. He was quite large, so I made the card a little larger at 5.5 by 6.5 inches. Now I realize I didn't check if I had an envelope to fit the card, oops. Most of the cardstock is Papertrey Ink, Bazzill for the gray numbers, the patterned paper from Wild Rose Studio, Milton and Co., maybe a little flowery for a boy (uh, middle aged man) card.
I actually tried to sew on my card this time. I even had some gray thread so I used that as well. At first I thought the tension was too tight, even on auto, but after I loosened it, the stitches got too loose (hence the bumpy looking stitches on some areas). Then the first stitched line that I thought was too tight, actually loosened up and ended up looking the best. Next I have to work on sewing straight.
OK, finally that's it for me, took me so long to type this up between taking a break for the Ladybug game and getting the kids ready for bed. Bye!
