Papertrey's MIM #86 Inside Edition

Oh, I'm so late posting this week. I love playing along with MIM, so late as I am, here's my card!
Ashley Canon Newell had us give the inside of our cards some TLC. I have to admit, I do this each time I create a card. My sewing  machine has a prominent place in my craft room,
so each card I do has some sort of sewing on it, usually always on the inside.
Love Lives Here: Holiday was introduced by Papertrey last year, and I loved the homespun angel!
She's the focal pt. of the card with a few die cut and embossed snowflakes from Snowflake Medley.
She's mounted on a die cut Fillable Frames #10.
Papers PapertreyInk: Bitty Dot, Candy Cane Prints, Ocean Tides and Kraft.
Sentiment from Love Lives Here: Holiday
I stamped a woodsy Christmas tree on the inside, and then sewed a velum piece over it.
Sentiment from Happiest of Holidays, stamped in dk. chocolate.
2 die cut snowflakes finish off the corners.
The scalloped edging was acheived by using the off piece of border heart die.
Hard to see, but I added a bit of snowflake edge to simulate angel feet.
An embossed snowflake is her halo.
Make It Monday features a new video and challenge every week. It can be found on PapertreyInk's website, on Nichole's Blog.
But be careful! It's highly addicting!

  1. Love the color palette you have worked with here - and the finished inside is really lovely. I'm trying to get brave enough to sew on a card . . . maybe one day.
