Sew Crafty B'day Card

For an upcoming birthday, a "Sew Crafty" card using Sew crafty Collection using SCAL and my Silhouette machine to cut all the images shown.  There are other fun crafty images in this collection. The original cut file is for a hanging home is so simple to re-size all the pieces for a card front using the SCAL computer program.  Paper used is SU Black, Michael's Kraft, and Graphic 45's Bits and Pieces Kraft Reflections Collection. Both Kraft and Graphic 45 paper are sponged with SU's Chocolate Chip ink. Use small color card stock scraps for the thread and "sew crafty" words. The dress form is also popped with dimensionals and the ribbon is single knotted adhered with a mini glue dot at the waist. All images were cut using SCAL. A quickie glue pen or 2 Way Glue pen is handy to adhere many of the small pieces.
Here's a closer look at the sewing items on the top right hand corner of the card: yup, those are separated snaps (adhere using mini glue dots) with a fancy dancy button.
And on the bottom left corner:  some more fancy dancy antique looking buttons. Use a fine black pen to make thread lines on the spools of thread (which are popped with dimensionals). Love the pinked edge detail on this card, too.
Card inside: Vanilla card stock from Michael's. Stamp used is from retired SU It's Your Birthday using SU Chocolate Chip ink. Sponge edges using SU Chocolate Chip ink, too.
This fun card is so easy to make................try it!!!! and have fun, too.
