If you’re not familiar with the song “Walk like an Egyptian” by the Bangles, be sure to Google it.  Once this song popped into my head, I knew it was what I was going to use for this month’s challenge.

  1. Make card base from brown cardstock.
  2. Cut colorful patterned paper to 4.75 by 6.75 inches.
  3. Cut orange patterned paper to 4.25 by 6.25 inches.
  4. Using the Royal Satin ink pad, brayer color over the glossy paper.
  5. Stamp the Egyptian stamp with black ink.
  6. Using the Sew Easy tool and mat, run the tool along the edges of the orange patterned paper.  Use the craft pick to poke the holes all the way through.
  7. Straight stitch with the gold thread and attach to colorful patterned paper.
  8. Trim brayered piece to fit inside sewing borders and attach.
  9. Computer generate sentiment and print on white cardstock.
  10. Cut out sentiment with ribbon tag trio die.
  11. Attach sentiment as shown using gold ribbon and tape.  Attach layered piece to card base.
  12. Die cut some embellishments out of the woven paper from the collage kit (or any unusual paper) using the Lotus pendant die.
  13. Glue the embellishments to the top of the card with the 2 way glue.
