It’s Jess here with another fun project to share with you!
If you love sewing AND vintage, then this project is going to be just for you!! Isn't it just lovely? I can't wait to tell you all about this gorgeous HANDMADE CARD. I used the following Southern Ridge Chipboard products on this card:
Sew.......hahaha (ok, I'm not really that funn).....your first step is the background. I actually adhered a piece of scrap fabric to a piece of cardstock for my base! Next, it was time to get my chipboard pieces all prettied up! I used a mix of Embossing Powder and some copper Gilding Flakes to create the vintage feel on the sewing machine!
A key tip to working with gilding flakes - don't keep an overhead fan on with an open container (or the air conditioning/furnace vent). Just take my word for it ;)
Gilding flakes are also a fun way to add texture and dimension! Simply apply a bid of adhesive, lay on your flakes and then brush off the excess. I used a 2 Way Glue Pen to adhere mine. Once everything was embossed and distressed with gilding flakes, I added a bit of dusty rose & white lace and adhered everything to my fabric covered card. I felt it needed a little "extra" so I used my Nuvo Crystal Drops in Pearl to create liquid pearls everywhere! I just LOVED this sentiment which was stamped and embossed with a dark navy blue embossing powder.
I thought the pearls on the mannequin added the perfect touch. I hope you enjoy this project - I loved making it.
See you next time!
