Topic: Paper Embroidery
For a recent swap, with the assignment to work in silver and/or gold, I stitched up these praying hands in gold metallic Sulky thread on silver cardstock. I cut it out and embossed with a Nestability die.
I used a silver folded cardstock base and trimmed off the right of the front. Then the front panel has had a gold foil paper overlaid and the stitched panel is mounted onto it.
I used gold peel-off stickers on the left corners and as a border on the inside back that shows when the card is closed because of the trimmed front cover.
I added graduated rhinestone accents along the top and bottom of the stitched panel.
