Old and New With Some Hand Stitching


Edited to change the location of the flowers on the card.
 I moved them up !

!
Too low on this one.
Papertrey Ink 

Create a Birthday Card
I almost forgot to enter in this challenge.
I would say my card is clean and layered. 





Papertrey Ink felt.

I was not sure I was going to get the
but I am so glad I did. I was just messing around making these first two, not thinking outside the box or anything. I Love these dies and I know how to sew on a machine but I also love hand stitching. I used to do a lot of counted cross stitching years ago. 

My reading glasses fit in this one above and I thought it would be perfect for: tampons…. did 
I just say that on my blog! Shhhh!

Photos all taken at night.

After I posted this I did not like how low the flowers were so I moved them up and like it much better. It almost looked like they were falling off. 




 I was reminded of this March Inspiration file from Joyful Creations with Kim’s post.  I honestly made this card in less than 20 minutes , thats fast for me. I combined some old with new. I love embossing with dies and that is what I did again with this Papertrey Ink - Cover Plate: Deco Die .  

 Thanks for stoping by.  I know my visits to friends have been 
random , I am sorry.

Oh my goodness these are so stunning, I loved the look of the coin purses... They look so modern. I can never stitch, I have a sewing machine and I just look at it ;) lol

Marybeth this post has just blown me away ~ oh my goodness!!! Your card is simply amazing, excellent work!! And the coin purses are as cute as can be. Love the little heart tab on the first one. I think you've convinced me I need these dies!

Tracey McNeely said...

Marybeth your whole post is gorgeous!! I love your card, wishing I had got the cover plate now. Your colours are perfect for spring. I love your little purses and that little eyeglass/yup you did say that purse! ;)

Brenda in IN said...

These coin purses are so darling. I love how you made them. Also love your card. What a great frame. I love you gaming cards for guys too.

Ha, ha, you can always blame it on being busy so late at night, ha, ha!
Your purse is gorgoues and so versatile you can use it for so many things, ha, ha, even the one you mentioned, ha, ha, sooooo funny!
Okay, let's be serious, I just adore your card! Love the white/ pink combo and you're right about moving the flowers more up, it's incredible how such a small detail can make such a big difference!
The dry embossing and the diecut frame, oh my gosh, it's so elegant and very very stylish!
Love the sentiment, love everything Art Deco!
Bye,

Marjolein

ps.I do hope you didn't feel too tired when you woke up this morning, being up so late at night and all..... :-)
Sorry for my Dunglish, but you get my point, I'm sure. :-)

Nancy Guse said...

Hey Marybeth, you are too funny! I love your card and so glad you raised the flowers so we can see the difference. Coin purses are lovely too. I wish I would have gotten that die now!

Cathy Weber said...

I can't say what I really WANT to say here Marybeth...I will write you an email! LOl, but just know your very unusual use of the coin purse die cracked me up! I'm going to show it to Carly and see what she says! I love your beautiful Gatsby-like card...everything is framed so perfectly and I love the flowers moved up in the revised version...Good eye!

Eliza Art said...

Hello! , Fantastic work, original, greet and welcome

Diane Jaquay said...

Marybeth, that is one of the prettiest cards I've ever seen (and I mean that!) Seriously, exquisite is the word that comes to mind, and breathtaking! It's going straight to my Pinterest board for inspiration! Btw I do agree that the flower looks better higher up. And I love the cute little felt purses. I really wanted that die but just couldn't fit it into my budget. I'm hoping to pick it up next month, fingers crossed :)

Monica K. said...

Your card is gorgeous and the coin purses are so cute! Love the aqua and kraft colors together. And can I just say the tampons idea is actually brilliant--a great way to disguise something that can be a little awkward to carry around. Your work is really beautiful!

Erin said...

You did a great job with the coin purses!!! And I'm going to remember that idea of impressing with the Art Deco plate teamed up with Gatsby Glamour...absolutely lovely.

And yes...I'll have some tampons in a coin purse in my backpack:).

Julie said...

Your cards are crisp and clean and wonderful Marybeth. Perfect in fact!

artful-notions said...

Yes to moving the flowers up, makes for perfection, which I have come to expect from you! (LOL). And the coin purses are so cute, I'm so sorry I didn't get the dies. Maybe next month. Every one I've seen you all create makes me want to do some. Tampons? I'm past that stage! Glasses yes, tampons no!

Kim Heggins said...

Oh my...you are just amazing and so stinkin' creative! I love your sweet coin purse and that eye glass case, genius my sweet friend! Your card is about as classy and elegant as it can be...I love all your wonderful creations. No worries about commenting, it happens when it happens.

Joyce said...

I just love your card. Once I saw the flowers moved up, I agree that it is better that way, but I still thought the first way looked pretty good. I have that set, but have not yet broken it out. Your coin purses are very cute--for whatever you are trying to carry...

Sue said...

Gorgeous card, Marybeth. I love the delicate frame and embossing x

Bonnie said...

What a pretty card and I do like the flowers in the higher position. Isn't it amazing what one little tweak can do? Love these little purses! They're so pretty in the felt! I especially love that little bird!

Diana K said...

Love your card and the coin purses - so much! Neither of these sets were in my radar, at all, but I think you just might have convinced me that I need them!

Sue Lelli said...

I, too, LOVE the flowers moved up on your GORGEOUS card! Also those coin purses in the felt are just WONDERFUL!

Kara said...

Lesley Croghan said...

So fresh and pretty! I love it!

KayM said...

OOOOOH!! I LOVE this Marybeth!! Every time I come to your blog I find stamps that I should have bought already! haha! I want that Deco die now for sure! Your card is just stunning!! The little coin purses are adorable too!

Sharron said...

LOVE your card, Marybeth! The impression plate design looks stunning and I agree about the flowers. Placing them higher does tie them to the frame better. Love your coin purses too--so adorable done in felt! I

Jacquie Southas said...

Love the art deco pieces on the card (and definitely like it more with the flowers moved up)!
