HANDMADE MERCI



Hello!!

For today's card I am showing a card made with some handmade inchies made with felt.  I am practicing with my digital cutter and fabric and my latest adventure was to make three inchies with some flowers, hearts and buttons.  They were hand stitched, I tried to make stitches with my sewing machine but they were so small I could only smell tragedy so instead I turned to my needle and floss ;)  I also used a great embossing folder with Chevrons, and stamped chevrons on the panel where the inchies were fixed.

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:


Retro Sketches #29
A good sketch is the foundation of a great card!!!

Challenge #37 Chevrons


And again to ....

OK, that kitchen is so adorable!!  Seriously, I could live there ;)

And here is my card:


And some close ups of those cute inchies:

Hope you have a great day and thanks for the visit!!
