Today's cartridge is the really cute Country Life. The more I look at it the more I see some really cute things on this cartridge. First of all there are some really cute country images...farmers, farm animals, foods, vintage looking images, as well as a great fonts, a banner and other nice features.
I did another card from this cartridge back in April....you can see it here if you'd like.
For this SEW SWEET card I used papers from DCWV Linen Closet (including the cardstock stack)
and a sheet of chocolate brown cardstock I happened to have on hand. I always love when I can find things to use I have on hand!
I used my Gypsy and my Expression 2 and cut all images and layers at 4 inches (this card is actually a 5x7 card). It assembled nicely...I just used my Zig 2 Way glue pen (the greatest)
The measuring tape and the Sew Sweet sentiment are Unity Stamps (love that brand...those stamps are such great quality!)...and are cobranded stamps with Cosmo Cricket and are from the Material Girl sets. The top label is an EK Success punch and the label that I used as a mat is the Fillable Frame Die from Paper Trey Ink.
I added some metal flat head beads and did a little pen work on the sewing machine as well as a little dark brown satin ribbon I picked up at JoAnn, etc.
and that's it. It really is SEW cute! I don't think the picture does it justice but trust me....it is adorable if I say so myself. Don't you just love that vintage sewing machine? It reminds me of my grandmother.... :)
