How Special Are You? Sew Special and a Joy to Have as a Friend!

You’re getting to see a sneak peek at several new items coming August 1st from Our Daily Bread designs!

Today’s Technique challenge on Splitcoast was to make a box for those chunky cards that just don’t fit into an envelope….you know the ones… layers and layers, piled with flowers and embellishments!! This isn’t mail-able, but it makes for a neat presentation to hand to that special someone and make them smile!

My “box” lid is embossed with Kassie’s Brocade, the window is Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles and Large Labels. I used my Scor-buddy for too! That awesome fence… that is larger than *whisper* Martha’s, is Fence Border Die, one of the new items!! How cool is that!!!

The stamp set is Sew Special, it’s colored with Copics and sponged with Distress inks. I added some white gel pen to some of the quilt block and did some faux stitching on the Spellbinders Grommet Tag.

I have several old needle packets from my mom’s sewing stash… this one just happened to be quilting needles! I didn’t want to put the package on the card so I just scanned and copied it! 4 cents… now that is old!

Although my card isn’t super chunky, it would be a pain to try to send in an envelope!

Here’s another card I did using the Sweet William Large and Small sets.

A quick simple one using the flowers from both sets and some wax paper flowers too with Spellbinders Blossom 3 on my Grand Calibur! The black layer is faux’d using a sharpie marker and a ruler.

Thanks for stopping!
