sew suite!

Some things to note about this card.
*It is fabric pieced
*The fabric swatch under the sewing machine needle - I cut a slit in the CS and slid the fabric through the slit
*The lace flower is layered with Cherry Cobbler ribbon seam binding
*The DP and fabric is from 2010 SU! Holiday Mini catalog

This is an all Stampin' Up card using the Sew Suite stamp set.
 Love this set.
Being a seamstress in my past life
(i.e. Before I grew up and became a school counselor!)
I still enjoy any project that incorporates fabric.

What a great card! I 'sew' love the vintage feel of this one. The ribbon looks 'sew' cute on the dress form, and look at that little scrap of fabric on the sewing machine! You are 'sew' clever!!! Hugs!

This is just so creative and lovely. I adore this card and I don't even sew. lol. The way you paper pieced with the fabric and used it in your card is so creative. I recognize that paper as I just used some myself, great reuse...the colors are perfect. Thanks for playing at Sugar Creek Hollow this week. As you know we love vintage and it looks like you do too!
