Retro Sewing Card

Sewing Card

Card Positioning Systems is celebrating their 5th Anniversary by releasing a sketch a day for 15 days. 

This card is my interpretation of the day six sketch. 

This card was made with a Vintedge kit by Ruby Rock-It, on a Kraft base.  The kit was fantastic value, 6 different paper designs (2 of each for 12 sheets total), plus stickers and die cuts for $10.  I used the Tim Holtz Sewing Room Alterations die to cut two bobbins and wound embroidery floss around the centre and attached them as accents.  There is also a yellow bobbin inside next to the sentiment which reads:  "May your bobbin always be full".

I'm still not sure if I like this card, retro is not something I have played around with much.  I am sure if I pop in a fat quarter of quilting fabric the recipient won't care what the card looked like ;o)
