Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: winter white

This week's Tuesday Trigger at the Moxie Fab Blog is this gorgeous 'appliqued' wedding cake from Martha Stewart Living.

It inspired me to haul out my sewing machine and to come up with my own appliqued elements for a card.  Can't believe I've finally got around to using some of the embroidery functions!  I bought my sewing machine about 24 years ago and the instruction book has wonderful photos of 80s clothes and some gems like this one: 'Lace will always be popular with both young and old and whatever fashion or the times decree, lace will find a way onto garments or into the home'.  I'm sure Martha would agree!

This is what I came up with:


Supplies
Paper - PTI stamper's select white, smokey shadow
Stamps - PTI 2009 anniversary set (sentiment)
Ink - versamark
Accessories - sewing machine, white embossing powder, Martha Stewart gemstones, Tim Holtz idea-ology memo pin, tulle, glue dots

  4. Wow, that is such a cool idea!! Very well done!
    I also wanted to comment on your "wrinkled ribbon" card, but I can't find it on your blog (I know it was in my reader...) - anyhow, I wanted to say that I looooved that card, super duper elegant and dreamy! And of course I wanted to wish you a very happy new year and thank you for your nice wishes :) I hope that your holiday season was great and you're enjoying summer in Auckland! Best wishes from rainy (11° today - all the snow has gone away!!) Heidelberg :)
