Stitched With Care

 The theme for this month's stamp club exchange was "sewing."  This is one of the cards I made and I started by electronically cutting the diamonds out of four different patterned papers.  I actually stitched those to a piece of cardstock after I taped the punched edge in place.  The ribbon is held in place with little glue dots and I added a needle with thread, two tiny straight pins, and a button.  The largest embellishment is a thread bobbin.  I cut that with my electronic cutter and added a length of embroidery thread.

I don't often use my sewing machine in cardmaking so this was a good opportunity to do so.
