Being a little 'Krafty'....


Morning Peeps

Well.... it's Anything Goes challenge time again....  and this time the theme is Sewing - Real or Faux.  A difficult one for me (aren't they all?? LOL), as I can never seem to sew in a straight line on card... though somehow I managed on my curtains (thank goodness!)
I decided to go way out of my comfort zone and try to use kraft card as the main part of the card...  a type of card my daughter (and probably most of the younger generation) goes for!  Sooo I used a lovely little digi Santa image called Santa Jump from Birdie Brown (it comes in a fab set with a few others too - so you'll definitely see him more on here).  I coloured him with Prismacolour pencils and blended- again out of my Copic comfort zone), then stamped a Paula Pascual Christmas Sentiment.  Of course, his beard, hat and bobble HAD to have glitter which doesn't show up well on this pic, but does IRL.   Then I waged war with my sewing machine and this is the best it could come up with.  The whole front panel is separate from the card, and I used 3D foam pads to lift it up.

So be kind ... I did my best at things I'm not used to using!!

Don't forget you can buy lots of craft items from Lynn at The Craft Den.

Big hugs and Happy Crafting..
