Here's the Verve set I used:
I used a square of 5th of April and distressed all the edges. I then added a doily and vertical panel of 4th of April followed by a smaller strip of 7th of April and yet a smaller still strip of the backside of the 7th of April. I cut the post card out of a sheet of Days to Remember and distressed those edges as well. I then added the scrunched seam binding (from one of my 'experiments' in dying my own), raffia, stick pins and a gem. The sentiment is from Verve's You and I set and I stamped that on a banner shape, distressed the edges and sewed it onto the card with an XX pattern. I decided after it was all done to sew the outside edge, so I paper pierced and hand sewed the exposed perimeter. That's all...just for fun.
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
