Good morning.... today's card is a little bit different to a normal card. My good friend Sue is celebrating her 70th Birthday today, so i thought i would do an extra special birthday card for her. A keen seamstress i decided to make a sewing machine shaped birthday card for her.
For one of the dials i have cut a circle and also a scalloped circle and joined together with a brad so that the circle turns. I have added peel-off numbers and symbols which you would find on a real sewing machine.
I had some small sewing embellishments which i have stuck to the front of the machine. The tape measure is actually ribbon which i have rolled up to make it look like a small tape measure.
A close-up of the threaded machine.
I made a small cotton reel with thread wound onto which i then have threaded through the machine.
I really enjoyed making this card and i hope she will like this card.
Have fun today, what - ever you are doing. x
