These are some cards i'll be teaching at The Scrapbook Company for a sew simple card class. The class focuses on teaching some simple ways to use various forms of sewing on cards.
The first card layers 2 stamps from the Mod Design 12x2 stamp set from Fancy Pants. The paper is two scoops by Basic Grey. The technique is simple... you just stitch along framing certain elements of your card and then color over the white thread with chalk. I choose Pebbles Inc shimmery chalks. They went well with the two scoops but i also stamped using Brilliance Inks on a glossy cardstock so the whole card has a bit of a sheen to it. :)
The 2nd card uses the Clear Design Letter Y set. The sentiment stamp already had "holes" so i simply poked thru the holes with a paper piercer. Along the edge of my cardstock, i also pierced holes with the paper piercer. Connect your holes with a white gel pen for a fabulous faux stitch look. :)
I'll be posting more Sew Simple card ideas this week! :)
