AAA Card Challenge #70 - Stitching

Hello everyone,

We are back with Game #70 here at AAA Cards and it's all about stitching.


Prize: £10.00 certificate

GD Beverley from Uniko


EunJi from Follow your Dreams

I love stitching on my cards but I thought I would branch out and use actual stitching from my sewing machine.  Well let's just say it's the thought that counts because all went wrong short of breaking a needle, which thankfully didn't happen.  But I decided to move on and try it again another day.  

I ink blended Mint and Audrey blue SSS inks onto vellum and heat set it (ink doesn't dry as fast on vellum as it does on card stock.  I then took one of the cross stitched circle dies from Lawn Fawn and die cut the vellum.  

I then die cut the work hello from white card stock with MFT's Emmitt alpha dies and adhered it to the die cut circle and the used that space to add adhesive and added it to my card base.  This would be a great card to mass produce but the little letters can be a bit tedious to add.  Mind you I'm the type that likes having all the letters straight but that rarely happens that way.
