Assignment: Make a Paper Embroidery Card Incorporating Fabric
This was a head-scratcher for me so I started by embroidering a X-stitch style border onto fabric-print scrapbook paper while I pondered a center motif in fabric.
I finally decided to use some scraps to create a layered tree by free-hand cutting 4 trees. I ran a line ov gathering stitch up the center of each separately, gathered each, layered them and stitched through all 4 layers. I then roughed up the edges of each layer and stitched the stack to the border layer. I used markers to color the white thread to match the fabric.
I layered this panel onto folded green cardstock and used sticky glitter dots to decorate the tree. Here is a closeup of the tree where you can see the layers and decorations better.
