Yesterday I shared part 1 of my handmade birthday gift for Nicole. Today I'm sharing part 2: handmade cards.
My goal with this project was to provide Nicole with plenty of handmade birthday cards.
This project took a good long while to complete since I designed as I worked and went back & forth, and back & forth, and back & forth about the designs! Thankfully Sweet Stamper was available, encouraging me to not despair & give up!
Keeping with my 'Sew Suite' theme, I used rub-ons for the stamped images, coordinating Designer Series Paper, coordinating buttons, punches and some Big Shot elements to lend interest...I hope:)
The envelopes received a few rub-ons too.
At the last minute I decided to sew up a mini tote to house the cards & envelopes, utilizing the same 'Sew Stitch' fabric.
I attached some velcro to keep the tote closed and ribbon tabs for easier opening- this was accomplished in a whirl so no comments about my messy stitching, please:) I was just trying to get it to stay together!
This concludes part 2 of my handmade birthday gift- tomorrow I'll be sharing the final part:)
Thanks for stopping by,
