A second card for the Less is More challenge this week, where the theme is 'Homespun'. This time I decided to add real stitching.
I've had some Bazzill stitching templates for a long time, but can't remember the last time I used one of them. I chose a flourish pattern, which I sewed with embroidery thread. The border was punched with a Martha Stewart punch, which I thought looked like broderie anglaise, keeping the Homespun theme. The sentiment was from a set of stamps that came as a free gift with a magazine. I stamped it using a Versafine 'Onyx' inkpad, then added some faux stitching with a fine purple pen. The stitched panel and sentiment are both raised up on foam tape.
I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
