After about two weeks of the machine sitting in my livingroom I decided to finally try it out on a piece of paper. I was quite impressed by my beginners ability. I could at least get a decent stitch...well, decent enough for me. Today's card features the sewing technique. I also sanded some of the paper down to give it a distressed look.

Oh, also I used buttons! I have never used buttons on a card before. I have been dying to do so. Can I tell you a little secret? I sanded the cardstock after I had stitched it. Big no no! It sanded the stitching off and I used the buttons to cover the oopsie spots. It turned out nice though. It was a good oopsie in the end.
