Wacky Wednesday-Shaped Card!

I made this card quite some time ago and forgot to post it. I thought it would be a great card for someone that sews as a hobby so I thought it appropriate to create a "spool card":

The card is the same size as a regular card at 4 1/4" x 11", scored and folded in half. I hand-drew the remainder of the card and then embossed the front panel with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder. I sponged around all the edges using a Sponge Dauber and Early Espresso Ink. I then added a piece of Designer Paper that was also sponged on the edges:

I stamped and embossed the swirls right on my DSP and then added the buttons, and sentiment layers. It's a really simple card to make and a good way to use up some of your buttons!

Stampin' Up! Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Marina Mist
  • DSP: Retired
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, Early Espresso Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Sponge Dauber, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch
  • Inks: VersaMark, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
  • Accessories: Designer Buttons, Baker's Twine
  • Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Retired (swirls)

    1. Thanks Janet! Trying to get caught up posting cards I made quite some time ago!

  2. Awesome card, I thought that the spool shape was a die!! WOW!!! Love those buttons on top of the spool, really great card for the crafters you know who can sew.

    1. I thought of my mom when I made this, she's big on sewing. Now that she's retired it's a great past-time for her. Thanks so much!
