I made this card recently for a keen patchworker.
I started with the idea for the main panel, which looks deceptively simple, but it took me a lot of doodling and measuring on scrap paper before it got the shapes to 'work'!
All the paper snippets came from the same pad, which has been on my shelf for some time
(um er, I'm not sure how long, but... )
I paper pieced the pincushion and thimble, then overstamped it using embossing ink, then silver embossed it.
The wee strawberry beside the pincushion is an emery bag, used to sharpen you pins and needles.
The papers were carefully placed apart on the cream layer so I could faux stitch between them, using a fine-line pen.
I stamped the sentiment in espresso ink and trimmed it out to a banner shape, layering it on a snippet of orange card, and also 'stitching' around the words. The orange base card was 'stitched' with a silver pen.
I finished the inside by stamping the pincushion again in the espresso ink, off the edge of the page.
