My sewing machine was threaded with black thread and honestly, time was short today, so I went for an oldie, but goodie....Paper-piercing! I hardly ever do this technique, and I'm not sure why, cuz I do love it, and it couldn't be easier to add a little somethin-somethin to your card!
Here you can see some dimension...the umbrella is popped up on one side with dimensionals. I added 3 baby brads where her coat clasps were. Crystal Effects was applied to the umbrella, puddle and glaze pen was added to the raindrops, frogs eyes and tongue. I used dimensional pearls for her hair 'baubles' (that's right Michele, baubles! lol;). I covered the umbrella handle with silver spica pen and green spica jazzed up Froggy! I used silver on her boot buckles as well. Loads of little details on this otherwise simple card!
Little SU! blue buttons were threaded with linen thread bows and anchor the sentiment strip.
