Sew Lovely cards

I had fun de-hoarding supplies over the weekend and made several cards using strips of patterned papers. I'm showing you two today that use my Spellbinders Sewing Elements dies and The Craft's Meow Sew Lovely stamps.
I glued several strips of My Mind's Eye papers in a 6x6 cardstock (actually the back of the paper pad). I then cut them into 4 3x3 squares. I die cut the center with the sewing machine that you see here.
I embossed the blue panel with the Regal M-Bossabilities folder. I then swiped my white ink on the embossed parts to show the patterns.
Here is the negative part of the die cut. To enhance the sewing machine shape, I embossed (without cutting) the die on white card stock and inked the raised parts. I then mounted the negative frame over that with foam dots.
The pretty border is the Classic Edgeabilities One with the Decorative Inserts #1.
I added some stitching, buttons and twine. I love that I used up my scraps for these cards and more. I'm sure I will do this over and over again. I'm entering this to the Moxie Fab Paper Scraps Challenge.
