Call Me- Featuring March's Creative Cafe' kit

Hello there Cafe friends!  It's Mary-Ann here to share with you a layered card using March's Kit of the Month -Fashionable Accessories.  I pondered over what I was going to make for this card, what stamp I wanted to highlight.  I just loved the phone and wanted it to be the star.  Here is what I created.

I started with the standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card base, and added a slightly smaller patterned paper to the card.  I whipped the edges through my sewing machine and started layered papers and stickers until I was content.  The circles are cut with nesting Fiskars circle punches.

I did add some foam tape behind the phone and other items for dimension.  You can see here that I added a group of thread wrapped around the card and tied in a bow.  Since there is sewing on this card, I used the same color for the bow.

You can see here that I just twisted my brown ribbon tight to create more of a rope effect and stapled it in place.  

I added glue dots to my "Call Me" banner, buckled it a little and attached as you see here.  If this were going to be mailed, it could just lay flat.

I stamped the phone with brown ink and VersaMark, heat embossing with clear embossing powder.  A little doodling around the edge of the card and around the phone circle with a brown pen adds a bit more detail.  Since I did machine stitching, I pretended to do the same with squiggly marks with my brown pen.  With a paintbrush, I added brown drops of Dylusions Ink Spray.  I maintain control for the larger drops and then flick it on my finger for the smaller ones.
Here's a final look at my finished card!

Hope you are inspired.  See you soon.
