When I first saw the tangled posies strip die I thought it would be fun to add some stitching to the pinhole details. Now I will admit this took a bit longer than I thought it would but I think the results are worth the extra effort.
To start I used the tangled posies strip die along with kraft cardstock to die cut the decorative strip.
Next, I used white thread and a needle to hand stitch all of the detail. It was really easy to sew and I am not a sewer. I just followed the pattern on the die cut.
Here is a close up of the die cut and the detailed stitching.
Next, I added a little more detail to the pattern paper. I used the handwritten floral greetings stamp set and versamark ink to stamp the images in the upper and lower corners of the paper. I used Nuvo embossing powder – glacier white along with a heat tool to melt and heat set the powder.
Here is a close up of the stamping detail at the bottom of the card.
I used the Tim Holtz 8″ guillotine/trimmer for all of the paper cutting and I used the tangerine machine for all of the die cutting. To assemble the card I used craft tacky glue and added the layers of pattern paper to the 5 x 5 white top folding card base.
Then I added foam squares to the back of the decorative strip die cut and placed that on the card front. To finish off the card I added Nuvo crystal drops – ivory shell to the flower centers on the die cut. I also added Nuvo glitter drops – golden sunset to the flowers centers on the stamped images and a few sequins.
This card came together pretty quickly. For a quicker version, you can use a white gel pen or fine tip black marker to create faux sewing. The possibilities are endless!
