If you haven't come across her yet, she designs for CC Designs (in the UK you can buy from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and Dies to Die For). I've never done one of her sketch's before but had to have a go as she's one of my fav designers and card creators. Anyway, here's my card...
It's not exact to Amy's sketch, but I just can't cope when things aren't symmetrical enough! I got the tension wrong on my mini sewing machine (yes, still loving it!), but I decided I quite liked the rough effect of the stitching so I didn't correct it. You can't see it in the photo, but I also used a Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust pen on the image and writing on the tag. I love that pen - just adds a touch of subtle shine. I'm considering using a glaze pen or Diamond Glaze all over the ornaments but not sure if that would suit the style of the card.
I bought the K&Co Mat Pad and Tag Pad last year but didn't use them - they were too beautiful to be wasted by this novice! But what with all the beautiful paper designs that keep being released I was determined to use it up before I bought a new xmas collection - and I have! I have a whole production line going now and will have about 30 cards made up. Not bad for September! They are are all in a half finished state and hope to finish them this weekend.
