Antiques Window by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
I am a big fan of stitching with my sewing machine on my cards & projects, and recently started experimenting with this metallic gold thread from Gutermann.  I was doubtful that it would stand up well, because it is such a delicate filament, but it works beautifully!  I used it to glam up this week's card using Antiques Window (Sku #4587):
 Even though this is a masculine card, I don't find the gold thread to be over the top - it just adds a bit of glimmer.  I made a frame with a double row of wonky stitching and popped it up with pop dots.  I did a little zigzag stitch on the heart, and popped both it and the main image up as well.  The Antiques Window is one of the Windows To The World stamps - they're quick to colour and have wonderful sayings written around them.  *This would be a great Father's Day card... you can find all the WTTW stamps here.  Happy stamping!

You're the Beary Best Pop Up card

Hello AI Fans!!

I have another PopCard to show you today. This one features #4860 Panda PopCard with #4862 Popcard Template. I colored him more like a regular bear instead of a Panda just cause I wanted to. :)  I love how cute they look peeking through the card front. 





Thanks so much for stopping by to visit today and hope to see you back again soon! Until then, stay crafty!
