Hey friends, I hope you’re doing well. I’m sharing a card today that I made months ago, probably back in the Spring. However, I wasn’t sure I liked it enough to share. So, I kept the card panel in my drawer until today when I took another look at it, trimmed it down to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and slapped it on a cardbase!
I’m not sure what it was about the design I didn’t like initially. But whatever it was, I do like it now. I used a reverse sentiment strip from Simon Says Stamp. The stitching was all done with cotton 2-strand thread.
Underneath, you might be able to see some dry embossing. I chose a deep red cardstock also from Simon, used an embossing folder from my stash so that it would show through the openings in the stitching.
I should take my own advice from my blog post and stop being afraid to share my creations. Some of my stitching is a bit wonky which is probably why it took me so long to share. I need practice, but perfection will come in time!
This die set is very easy to stitch, you go through the centers and out to the holes in each petal. It was very therapeutic to stitch!
