It is well known across the realm that my Lady Mother is a Master Seamstress. When she was still a young miss, she had already surpassed her elders in the art of stitching. She made tunics and dresses such that the realm had never seen, weaving the most wonderful creations out of seemingly dull fabrics. When my sister, the Lady Commander of Copics and brother, Jason the Machinist, and I were young, she wouldn’t let any of the servants make or purchase our clothing, insisting she do it herself as her pieces far surpassed anything else. As Mother’s Day is almost here, I retreated to my crafting chambers to create a card honouring my Lady Mother.
I started this card by cutting the shape using the Art Philosophy cartridge then stamping the image with the Unity “Sew Cute” set. I coloured it with Distress Markers and my fabled, Hydra brush, earning myself +218 water elemental exp points and levelling up! Next I stamped a ton of buttons (using the same Unity set) on different colours of card stock that matched the background paper. The sentiment (unsurprisingly) also came from that same Unity set. I’m not quite sure why, but the words on that stamp aren’t in a perfectly straight line....very strange (it even shows it crooked on the package picture). I kind of curved the stamp a little to compensate for the unevenness. It sorta worked....sorta....it's still a little crooked.
On the inside I stamped my newest favourite sentiment using the Unity “Deer to Me” set. This bad boy will be going on all future cards to my parents, reinforcing the fact that I am better than my siblings - haha :D
I stamped some more buttons on the envelope to make everything all matching.
I still have some of the items my Lady Mother stitched for me, and am saddened I did not learn her art. Instead, I became a Master of Paper...and an adventurer. Someone needs to keep the demons in check.
