Today, I have another card I made during last week's Girl's Night Out!
Using Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl cardstock stickers as well a border from Echo Park's Sweet Summertime element stickers (pink polka scalloped border) on a kraft card base made for some really simple elements. So, for a little fun, I pulled out my embroidery thread again.
This time I simply wound the golden embroidery thread into looped petals, sticking the ends of the loop to the back of the cardstock sticker as I went. I used two layers of foam stick tape to pop up each thread of spool up for some dimension.
Do you want to know what these embellished thread spool pieces remind me of?? Old bare wooden spools who have long ago unwound their last stitch of thread. My Mom has quite a few of those and she let both of my kidlets use them as building blocks when they were toddlers. The kids loved them! Not only can you build with them, but you can roll them, stand a crayon up in the middle of some of them, like a proudly waving flag heralding their wee hands' accomplishments in manipulating those old wooden spools.
Isn't is amazing how a wonderful, but simple little cardstock sticker can send you down memory lane??!! What are your memory triggers?
