Hi everyone! I did it!!! I finally unpacked my Janome Sewing Machine and learned how to stitch on my cards, thanks to the fabulous tutorials by Stamp TV!!! A HUGE thanks to Gina K for the inspiration! I'm very excited to share my very first card with real stitching. The Snowman Hug is a digital stamp created by my friend Tami and is available in her new shop, Gingerloft.
My card base is Bazzill cardstock layered with PTI White then Forest patterned paper. The shadow layer is Bazzill and Whiting Street patterned paper. I used a straight stitch along the edge of both pieces of patterned paper. The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers.
I paper pierced around the edges of the image then layered it on to Bazzill cardstock. The Merry Christmas sentiment is from Denami Design and was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White. To embellish the card I added some bling along the edge of the image and a button threaded with DMC White.
Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
