Topic: Paper Embroidery
Hooray for little vacations when you get dead time (sitting in airports, sitting on airplanes, riding in shuttles) to stitch cards like crazy... when not reading.
I had just such an adventure lately and the first project I whipped up was this Christmas card. I had never stitched this pattern before but I do like it. I used some ColorMe paper bor the background that had been tinted with silver Glimmer Mist. I thought with all the shine and the swirls it suited a skating theme well. The text is a rub-on and the snowflakes are clear stickers. They have a metallic finish to the flakes.
The base card has a pearlescent finish as well, making this a sparkly card in a low-key kind of way.
