Every year I make a set of note cards for my mother as a birthday present. Since she is a former Home Ec teacher, I thought this was a perfect card for her:
The stamp set is CTMH Puns of Praise which I cut into two: image and sentiment. I stamped the sewing machine twice; once on the patterned paper (retired) and once on the actual white circle. I decided there was no way I could fussy cut around the spool of thread at the top or the needle in the middle of the sewing machine. After paper piecing the sewing machine, I did add a couple touches of color: pink for shadows and purple on the wheel and buttons.
Because this was a sewing card, I didn't think I could get away with NOT sewing on it. And, since it is a punny card, I'm entering it over at Heart2Heart: Let's have some pun fun!
Most of the cards I make for Mom are individual. This one was so perfect for her, I made a set of eight. She always looks forward to getting her set of cards. This year, I have the privilege of delivering them in person. Can't wait to see the look on her face when she pulls this one out of the bag!
Until next time,
