Topic: Paper Embroidery

I needed to do a paper embroidery card with a 'train' theme and remembered I had this pattern of a famous toy train. I kept with the original coloring scheme but muted each of them for a softer look. I needed to keep it bright enough to be seen on the dotted yellow cardstock background, though. I layered with another patterned paper and a blue folded card base to bring out colors from the stitching. I used a couple of cardstock stickers for text.


NOTE TO SELF: No matter how cute the cardstock you want to stitch on, check out the back for overly busy or complicated prints. They are horrible to see your holes on the back and will cost you hours of frustration, especially if the lighting is poor - and if you insist on using it anyway, it will probably turn out that the lighting will be poor just to annoy you!
