All Stitched Up


Hey there! I made this card a couple of weeks ago for Paper Crafts stitching challenge. I’ve had my floss for a while and rarely use it. Now, I feel really comfortable and love stitching! I may have gone overboard here with all those circles, but it’s my first stitching focal point card. You can stitch any design and you really don’t need a template. As long as you paper pierce the design, stitching can be done super fast! For instance, use a flourish stamp (in a light ink) and then paper pierce the design.

Yesterday, I recorded this week’s video! I hope to edit it today and share with you tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Tuesday!

Card Instructions

  1. Trim kraft cardstock into a rectangle and pierce circle template.
  2. Stitch various circles.
  3. Stamp sentiment.
  4. Distress edges.
  5. Add ribbon and button.

  7. Adhere to an A2 card base.

That looks great Ashley. I really need to try some stitching. I want to use my sewing machine but just haven’t gotten up the nerve.
