My friend asked me to make a card for her MIL, who likes sewing. After a fair bit of brainstorming, I decided to go for a patchwork effect, so have had the opportunity to use up lots of scraps, this time the Papermania Henbury papers. It also includes a scrim and paper heart, embellished with cross stitches and a button. The letters are Sizzix dies, layered on to die cut circles, which have been embossed using a Crafts Too folder for a bit more texture. Beads and buttons have been sewn into the flowers and onto the FF greeting, which I have had for ages and got out of the habit of using.
