Hello there! Giorgia here today on the Clique Blog with a project that gave me so much happiness while making it because it features two of my favorite techniques: machine stitching and fussy cutting.
I love patterned papers with flowers, butterflies or other elements that you can cut to use as embellishments or to create something different... For me it is so relaxing to cut them while listening to music!
This project was inspired by my confetti bookmarks, do you remember them?
i wanted to create something similar, but this time I made a card, a slimline card to be precise (I especially love this format lately, it is cute and really up to date!)
I created the base with white cardstock and then I machine sewed a piece of vellum on top of it, leaving one side open. I filled with sequins and I finished sewing the last side to keep everything in place.
Now I grab a flower patterned paper and started to fussy cut flowers, leaves and branches. I arranged them on the two sides of the card and I added a butterfly (you can find something similar here).
In the centre I placed a big puffy stickers as sentiment and I added a little stamped phrase (the stamp I used is from my stash but in the shop you can find something similar, for example this one and this one). I fussy cut also the stamp, I am quite a fussy cutting maniac LOL.
This is the paper I used: PAPER 2 | PAIGE EVANS BLOOM STREET | PINK PAISLEE, but In the shop you can find a looooot of flower papers that scream "fussy cut me!!" - I link some of my favorites:
This card will be the complement to a box full of sweets that I made: I always love to give my friends some little gifts to remember them how much I love them!
For this box I combined two kits that features the new Paige Evans collection:
The little birds in one of the kits are my favorites! They are the cutest!
I also added two little flowers from the package in the kit: they are perfect to create shakers too (I could try to make another card filled with them!)
Ciao, alla prossima,
