This Stitch is for You

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.  As challenge hostess this month I continue to issue the challenges.

Sunday 27th November is Pins and Needles Day which commemorates the opening of a historical Broadway Play called Pins and Needles in 1937.

This week let's create cards with a sewing theme, using either stamps, dies, papers, buttons, pins, needles or any combination of the above.

For my card today I created a pop up card using the Lots of Pops Pop Up Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

To decorate my card I used an image from Alota Rubber Stamps which unfortunately went out of business a number of years ago. 

Along the top and bottom of my card I used a zip die to create two zips. I have had this die for sometime and finally got to use it :)

Here is another view of my card so you can see the pop up part of my card a little better.

For the front of my card I used a sewing themed sentiment using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Circles and Dotted Scallop Circles for layering.

I added two reels of thread and a needle to embellish my card.
