If you're not familiar with this new line, there are stamp sets, Designer Series Papers, fabric, buttons, trims, rub-ons and more ... all centered around a sewing theme!
I was looking at the Button Card Stamp and thought that it just might fit in the tiny little envelope that can be created with the Big Shot and the Scallop Envelope Die. And you know what ... it was a perfect fit! So, of course, I had to create this little card to show it off!
I trimmed the button card along the outside stamping and then mounted it on a layer of Melon Mambo Cardstock and it slips perfectly inside the little scallop envelope. When you add a few of our colorful buttons (attached with a Mini Glue Dot) it makes a darling little gift for the seamstresses in your life!
I love the fact that the Scallop Envelope Die gives us a chance to show off both sides of Stampin' Up's! Double Sided Designer Series Paper!
I also love the little tape measure stamp that is included with the set. Here I stamped in in Black ink on Daffodil Delight Cardstock and then finished off the end with 1/2" Circle punch of Brushed Silver (after attaching, trim the circle to match the ends of the "tape measure") and then add a Pewter Brad for a very realistic look! How cute is that!
Do you see the darling little double-bow that I created using Rose Red 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon? My friend, Lee Conrey, recently gave me one of the Bow Makers that, I believe, she and her husband make (correct me if I'm wrong, Lee). Wow, this little gadget works so well! It's amazing! I had such fun making bows ... all kinds of bows ... single bows, double bows, even triple bows! Bows of narrow ribbon and bows of wide ribbon and everything in-between.
If you find it difficult to tie your own bows, or if you have arthritic hands which prevent your fingers from making all the twists and turns that you need to do when making your own bow, then you definitely want to check out Lee's Magic Bowmaker! It really works! Thanks, Lee, for your thoughtful and fun gift!
Well, that's about it for this card! I did spruce up the inside a little (surprise, surprise), with a strip of DSP and some more Seam Binding Tape and another fun bow! (click on the photo to view it larger)
