I finally got around to making a card based on this week's Card Positioning Systems (CPS)
sketch. Their sponsor is Inque. I meant to use some of the Inque Boutique
stamps that I have, but as you can see I did not do any stamping on this one.
It's a good looking card, I'll say for myself. At least one that I like. I did not like the first row of stitching when I started and I almost ditched the whole thing. But I kept sewing. I thought that the stitch was too wide. And I used craft thread, which is a bit thicker and the stitches need to be further apart.
I'm really into the grungy look = distressed edges. I pulled out the old guitar picks from AMM and the old American Crafts ribbon too. Good stuff. Using up the stash. Oh, this is an open-faced card.
Thanks for looking ... here's what I used:
cardstock and colored chipboard: Die Cuts With A View (DCWV)
patterned paper: Basic Grey and K&Co.
flower die cut: Sizzix
guitar pick: AMM
ribbon: American Crafts

embellishment: Dress It Up
other: distresser and sewing machine
