Happy 89th Birthday Grandma!

Here is the birthday card that I made my Grandma. Of course, the most sewing that I ever do on a card and that is when my sewing machine decides to act up. It wasn't sewing as smoothly as normal on the front of the card and on the inside of the card the machine jammed on me.

So, I do love how the card came together, but I am not overly thrilled with how the sewing turned out. My husband and daughter think I am over analyzing it.

I am very excited to finally use this design. I have had this idea for over a year (ever since I bought the diamond nestabilities) and when I received this paper pack for free from my Stampin' Up Party in March, I knew the time had come to use my design.

I used two-sided patterned papers from Stampin' Up Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper Pack with Stampin' Up Pool Party & Soft Suede cardstock.

To embellish the card, I used Stampin' Up 1/8" Calypso Coral Organdy Ribbon, the straight stitch on my sewing machine with thread from my stash, The Stamp Barn Detail Gold embossing powder and Diamond Nestabilities.

The image stamp on the front of the card came from Stampin' Up's Fresh Vintage stamp set, the "Happy Birthday" came from one of the stamp sets that comes with the CTMH Cricut Cartridge & the inside sentiments came from CTMH's Card Chatter - Love stamp set.

My grandma loved her card.
