I have another card to share that was submitted at Sketches 4 All for their Technique Tuesday Challenge (TECH-TUESDAY). The "technique" was to use STITCHING on your project.
Using a sketch from Splitcoast Stampers (SC345), this is what I created:
The paper I did the stitching on was already embossed, so I got the brilliant idea to just stitch along these swirls. So I got out the needle (I have a paper piercer, but chose a needle this time around) and started poking all the holes. It wasn't long before I realized that I may have bit off more than I could chew! This was going to be a lot of stitching! I think it took me around an hour. Once I got started, I couldn't just stop... all the holes were punched... so I had to continue on! I sure won't be making any mass production of these cards! On the flip side, I do love how it turned out though.
I embossed the lower portion of the card. I stamped the sentiment on the embossed paper, which was double-sided, so I just flipped it over for the orange color... that matched with my other papers too. Woo hoo! I then cut out the circle and inked the edges. A gem was added for the center of the flower. Ribbon is across the bottom portion of my embroidered paper.
