What a cool challenge....Just Add STITCHING!!!! This is one of my 1st cards that I've done stitching on - hang on - um...I think its my 1st one! Either way it was fun to do!
I cut the 5 strips of beautiful Bella Rose DSP - stuck them onto a piece of card - making sure I only used Adhesive in the middle of each strip so that the sewing needle doesn't go through any sticky adhesive. I then sewed with machine down each strip and around the edges.
Next, I put my paneled piece onto a piece of Basic Black and attached that to a Glossy White card with Dimensionals.
The ribbon - Whisper White Taffeta - has a running stitch through the middle of it (done on machine too) and then pulled to gather it up. I fiddled until I had the look I wanted. I adhered it with Sticky Strip.
And of course I LOVE HODGEHODGE!!!!!!
I actually only had one of the bird punched out and a few of the leaves but they were in the wrong colour.....never fear - I sponged over the So Saffron with Basic Black and Kiwi Kiss!
I love the colours of this card and I'm really happy with how it turned out! I'd love to know what you think of it too! Thanks for popping by!
