Topic: Paper Embroidery
Assignment: Make paper embroidery cards with the theme 'trees'
I have LOTS of tree patterns for embroidery so it was hard to choose one. However, I had only done up this one as a beaded Christmas tree so I thought I'd try to make it look more like it was in a natural setting.
I stitched both trees on brown cardstock using green thread (different ones on each tree) and stamped ground underneath using markers and a 'grass' stamp. I also added and colored a little bird on the ground then cut out the tree and ground. Beingd each I placed a printed blue cardstock to serve as the sky then backed with a green textured dot cardstock and a brown folded card base.
On this one I decorated the tree with golden Liquid Pearls:
This one got green rhinestones:
I didn't add any greetings as these can be stamped in the sky area before sending.
