You're Sew Special! Vintage Mothers Day Card

Hello!

I've just finished my 3rd Mothers Day card!

My mum has always loved sewing but doesn't have the time these days :-(
She says she quite likes vintage at the moment and I had this lovely vintage sewing stamp set in my stash I'd never used!




I used:

Sew Pretty Stamp Set - C&P Mag freebie (old)
"Best Mum" tag stamp - another old mag freebie
Coloured with Promarkers
Doodled faux stitching with Letracet fine liners

Flowers, pearl stamens - WOC
Margaret Flower Lace, Memo pin - Ribbon Girl

Tape Measure Washi Tape, Scissors Charm - old mag freebies
Papers, heart pearls, ribbon, small daisies - from stash

Inked all the edges to give it a vintage feel.
I love the cute Scissors charm!





I really like this one! Think Mum will too! I think I'll give this one from me and let the boys give her the Spring Card and Owl Card
What do you think?

  3. This is "sew" gorgeous, Lucy - I had to say that!! I love that image and the measuring tape, and the colour combo works so well. I used to sew a lot too - I made my daughter's wedding dress - but now I'd much rather make cards. Your Mum is going to love all 3 of her Mother's Day cards - and, yes - I would give her this one from you.

  20. Lucy, this is a card dear to my heart. I love sewing machines & sewing themes. You've done a super job on that faux stitching, and I really love the vintage feel of your so-pretty Mama's card. All the sewing charms added so much to this vintage feel too. My own Mom was an avid sewer, so that could be why I love the sewing machine motifs. I truly do like this card...Way to go! TFS & oh yes, congrats on your Snippets Playground Highlight.
