So I focused on the card
I'm not a huge fan of orange but I do love Cherry Cobbler or Real Red and Early Espresso together, and I love the stitching around the edge. I don't do a lot of sewing these days and this card reminded me why- even with a small distance the bobbin ran out half way through!!
I wanted the shoes in the tag to be shiny (like patent spats) but I found the embossing powder wasn't fine enough, and the shoes in Red just looked wrong so in the end I stamped the shoes in Early Espresso, then re stamped the image with versamark and heat embossed with clear powder over the top. My Stamp-a-Ma-jig was invaluable.
And of course the inside- ( you can even see that pesky bobbin thread is in two colours )
A wise friend taught me early in my stamping addiction that it makes good sense to make 2 cards at once while you have the ink and paper out so this is the second version which I have had in the back of my head ever since I saw the stamp set. ( I think it's actually my fave - reminds me of a record set of my mums which we played with as kids, complete with cha cha cha and foxtrot instructions!)
Thanks for looking, and enjoy the hop around all the CASEing the Catty design team. You can see the next blog here on Stasia's blog,
