For Space Cadets
Topic: Paper Embroidery

Assignment: Make a paper embroidery card with a 'space' theme.

I chose a shimmery blue background and randomly pricked out circles of 5 holes to stitch stars of varying sizes. I used bright yellow thread for them. Afterward, I used two hole punches to punch stars and mounted it on yellow folded card so it would show through the punches. The top corners were rounded on both layers.

The colors were chosen to feature the tag that I wanted to use for the centerpiece. I mounted it on yellow and cut a thin border around. Then I pricked the stars and stitched them. Where the tag 'hole' would have been, I punched a star and then mounted the tag with 3D glue dots.

I used three sizes of red rhinestones to fill the punched stars. This would make a great card for a boy if it weren't already going to be a swap card.
