sew much fun

i have to say, i had a lot of fun with this card! i made it for one of my bes friends - she's a HUGE twilight fan, and ever since we read the books (way before the movies people - believe it or not!), we have both been major 'team edward' supporters!! (sorry to danielle at girlracer scrap who's on 'team jacob'... *awkward* ha ha!)

i got these digi stamps from pixie dust studio, and have been wanting and wanting to make this card, and then this week i finally had the chance! the challenge this week (#37) at pixie dust studio is to use stitching (either real or faux) on a card. here's what i came up with:

see how sparkly edward is?? he's in the sunlight, ha ha! i colored him with a peach colored pencil, and then colored over the peach with my glitter pen to give the sparkle effect. fun!
moving on, i used my sewing maching to sew the letters down for 'team edward' as well as adding the horizontal lines to the double hearts. i have been using my sewing machine for a couple years with scrapbooking, and i just love it!

one more thing i have to add, see how jacob is not as bright as the rest of the card? i hid that part under vellum. i wanted to show the other side to the 'team edward/team jacob' debate. but since it was a pro-team edward card, jacob is on b&w paper and covered (sort of hiding under the rest of the card), because he loses. :)

let me know what you think!

and, enjoy!


  1. You can really see the sparkle on the 2nd pic!!! I love the stitching! I need to invest in a reg mini sewing machine. The made for scrapbooking ones are crappy!

    P.S. Jacob came running to me since he didn't win!!! lol

    Love it as Always!

  2. Wow! This is brilliant! I love how sparkly my Edward is :) I really love how you stitched everything together! and poor Jacob is right were he belongs ;) hee, hee! Love it all!
