.Happy Easter! I didn't have any Easter cards so I hope you don't mind if we stay with our sewing theme for today too! This card was a lot of fun using the new Bakers twine and some kraft card from my craft stash. I had some kraft ticking background paper which I thought suited the sewing theme so nicely. I did do a bit of stamping on the background first using some of Sam Poole's Vintage Sewing stamps, but it doesn't show up very well but it does add a bit to the vintage feel of the card. I decided that it needed some texture so I used an embossibility folder on the top half of it. Using Mom's sewing machine, I added a zigzag stitch around the top half also. I did a bit of edge distressing with my scissors to bring out the vintage feel too. I happened to have some paper ruler borders in my stash so I added one of those across the middle of the card. On the lower half of the card, I stamped my sentiment. I stamped my scissors on a small piece of kraft paper and cut them out. I glued them on to my card but left the end of the scissors unattached to my base card. Next I cut four of the thread spools, inked them antique linen and wrapped them with Bakers Twine. I chose four of the colours from the new vintage selection . I wrapped the twine around the spools until it covered them sufficiently. The last one, I left about seven or eight inches hanging from the end. I mounted all the spools across the top of my card and used the leftover piece of the twine to swirl down to where my scissors were mounted on the card. I tucked the end through the open scissor end and glued it into place. I tacked the twine in several spots with a drop of Cosmic Shimmer clear glue. The card was matted and layered with black card and finished with black Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue dots around the edge.
