dreaming of cool Autumn weather. So this week I used some of the brand new Cookbookin' Fall papers to construct my card based on Kimmy's sketch over at Let's Scrap. Here is her sketch:
There are so many BEAUTIFUL versions of this sketch posted by other Let's Scrap designers, be sure to head over there and check it out!
For my card I started with some textured cardstock from The Paper Studio. Then I punched squares from the Cookbookin' paper and sewed them to the card. Speaking of sewing, yesterday I was at a fabric store looking at patterns and materials for actually sewing clothing! It felt so odd to be thinking about sewing something besides a layout or card.
I am very ambitious this year...I am planning to sew costumes for the children. Yikes! They have decided to stick with a theme for Halloween and this year they are all going to be characters from Toy Story. My oldest wants to be the Chicken Man. I don't know...sewing a chicken costume??? Anyone ever done that? I did get some cow print material to sew chaps for my Jessie and a vest for my Woody but that is as far as I have gotten.
Anyway, back to my card. Once I had sewn on the squares, I rubbed on the sentiment from Imaginesce and then I attached one of my tissue paper flowers. I ran a tutorial on these a while back and the layout featured in the tutorial is actually of my kids from last Halloween:
