Patriotic Birthday Card

My Uncle's Birthday is on the 4th of July, so we put this card together for him. I remember my grandmother telling me about lying in a hospital on the 4th, and my dad (his brother) not being able to visit in those days. Instead, he'd have to stand outside on the sidewalk and wave up to his mommy. Also, my Uncle was nameless for a week! Crazy, huh?

Anyway, I used my little crafting sewing machine on this card. Ummmmm, not pretty! I guess if you're going for the messy look, it's fine. It was very hard to keep it going in a straight line. It was very hard to make it STOP. And you should see the stitches on the back side of the card.....a MESS! There's no bobbin on it at all, so I have no idea how it even makes stitches....what do you want for $6.00?

All in all it turned out cute. The patriotic birthday cake was just a sticker from an old pack I had. The stamp is from Target. Buttons and ribbon are from Michael's.

Have a great summer day! I think this is THE MOST beautiful summer I can ever remember....the weather has something to do with it, but also my kids being at this tender age of 4 and being so cool is the biggest part of it :-)

  1. Shhhhhh! Don't tell anyone you didn't "mean to be" messy: it's a cool look! Tee Hee I have the same problem with REAL sewing machines! This is a dynamite card with stitches and all! I love the way you photographed it as well: great job, darlin'!


What's on your mind, friend?
