Hello everyone, it’s Emma here!! This month, I was very lucky to be able to work with the Needle & Thread collection of papers and embellishments and I can honestly say, this is one of the most gorgeous Kaisercraft collections that I have worked with and it is so, me!! The colours, the theme, the vintage feel…it’s is stunning!
So, without further ado…here are the first of the cards that I made using this collection and as always, I really hope you like it…
For this card, I chose a card blank from my stash which I thought worked really well with the theme and I decided to go with an elegant vintage feel to my project. I chose to use the paper from the Paper Pad to cover my card blank and blended the edges with Distress Ink.
I then used a message from the Cotton 12″ x 12″ paper and added die cut flowers from the Collectables Pack of die cuts, together with one of the ladies and a die cut button. To complete the card, I blended and aged the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and finally, I added small adhesive pearls.
For my second card, I made a larger 8″ x 8″ card and covered the front of the card with another of the sheets of paper from the 6″ x 6″ paper pad, matted onto a piece of Ballet Weave Kaisercard.
I then used a further two pieces of paper from the paper pad and I cut these to size and using a pair of pinking shears, I cut the edges to give the look of material. Next, I took another of the messages from the Cotton 12″ x 12″ paper and again matted this onto Ballet Weave Kaisercard.
I attached the two pieces of paper that I’ve just cut onto my card front and then placed the message over the top of these.
I used some more of the gorgeous die cuts from the Collectables pack, including a pair of scissors that I attached to a piece of paper which again, I cut using the pinking shears to give the appearance of material. I arranged and added all the die cuts around the message and finished the card with a seam binding bow and a safety pin.
That’s it from me for today and I hope I’ve inspired you with some ideas to make cards using this fabulous Needle & Thread collection.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I look forward to reading all your comments..
Bye for now, Emma x
