Sew Tweet Imagine Card




I made this card for a friend of mine who made something awesome for me. When I receive this beautiful item, I’ll be sure to show it to you. :-)

If she checks my blog, I don’t think she’ll “clue-in” that it’s for “her”, so I think I’m safe in showing it, now. :-)

Tools/Items:-

Cricut Imagine
Cricut Imagine
Cartridge (see below)
Cricut Cartridges (see below)
Glue – regular
Double-sided Cardstock
Corner rounder
Seed beads
Wiggly eye
Hand-made pin (instructions below)

Using double-sided cardstock, I made a base card 7” x 10 ½”, folded in half, w/ the corners rounded. Added the following various items:-

Cricut Imagine Cartridge – Imagine More

Cricut Cartridges:-
3 Birds of Parade:- You’re tweet (p. 28); birdie (p. 49)
Wall Décor:- sew (p. 74)
Tear Drop:- thanks so much (p. 122)
Heritage:- sewing machine (p. 43)
Country Life:- spool (p. 65)

In order that the li’l birdie didn’t fade away into the cardstock, I hand-cut a background for him, so that he could stand out. Put li’l seed beads on the flowers.

I also printed/cut out a beautiful butterfly from Wall Décor (not for this card, tho, but so I could use up the space on the white cardstock, that I didn’t want to waste) I used the cut-out pieces that would normally be discarded and thought it would look nice on the sewing machine. I think it really adds to it. :-)

Hand-made pin:-
Head pin
Crimper
Glass bead

Put the whole thing together and threaded thru the top and then behind the sewing machine, so that it looks like a sewing machine needle. You can’t see the pin on the front of the card, as it’s behind the birdie. I really like how it turned out, even if I do say so myself. :-)

Hope I’ve inspired you to make your very own “Sew Tweet” card. :-)
