I've been wanting to play along with the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger for a while but haven't had the time, till now. Since I've been forced to stay home from work since Tuesday (see this article for the reason) I've had some spare time up my sleeve.
Here is the trigger image for this week:
And here's what I came up with:
The trigger image looks like someone's having a party, maybe for a birthday? So I made it a birthday card. I took inspiration from the garlands hanging from the ceiling and punched circles out of similarly coloured cardstock. I then took out my old mini sewing machine and messy stitched across the length of the card to connect them. This was my first go at stitching on a card - I envy the straight edges that others are able to achieve! I need heaps of practice... but please believe me that the stitches on this card are wiggly on purpose, I'm not really that bad at it I promise! Though I have to confess, it took me about half an hour just to thread the silly thing properly (note to self: keep the manual to the sewing machine somewhere handy and actually refer to it when threading the machine!)
Size of card: C6 (A5 folded)
Card/paper - Bazzill textured cardstock, Quill white cardstock
Stamp - 'Birthday' mini stamp set by Kaisercraft
Ink - Versafine 'Black Onyx'
Tools - Carl rotary trimmer, Helmar glue runner, Carl 1 1/4" round punch, sewing machine
