I hope everyone is having a fabulous day and for those in the USA that you have a Happy Thanksgiving! May the mashed potatoes be extra tasty (my favorite)!
I’m sure you are wondering how a knitting themed card ties into Thanksgiving? Well, today I’ll be having dinner with the family at my brother and sister-in-law’s place and my sister-in-law likes to knit! Ha – see how that works? ;)
The cute image is from the Knit Happens a la mode stamp set by My Favorite Thinks. I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out. I placed it over a second stamped image using foam dimensionals. I used various pieces of Vanity Fair designer paper matted on Aqua Mist cardstock as a background. I added stitching to all of the matted panels and finished embellishing the card with a few pink rhinestones and some luscious vintage seam binding (I love this color).
You may have noticed from this post and previous posts that I like vintage seam binding a lot. ;) I just love how easy it is to tie it into bows… and the colors run the gamut from bright and bold to subtle and elegant. Simply delightful! So, I thought I would share a Ribbon Carousel special that will be running from Thursday (today) thru Monday. Use coupon code “Holiday20” for 20% off at the Ribbon Carousel store. It’s the perfect opportunity to stock up on some vintage seam binding. LOL… I just had to share!
