Well I finally did it. I dusted off my Distrezz-It-All and my Janome Sew Mini for this card. I got in a rut and was just using the same tools over and over. And in my craft space I have tools I rarely or never use. Does this sound familiar?
I consider myself a good sewer when it comes to fabric oh but paper is a new one for me. And although I love my Janome Sew Mini I wish it had speed control. But I’m sure if I use it more I will get better sewing straighter stitches. But I like how this card turned out because 1. I used new tools that gave it a unique quality. And 2. I did not use the color pink. I tried my hand at using more rustic shades. Let me know what you think.
