Topic: Paper Embroidery
My friend who visited from The Netherlands brought me two spools of thread for paper embroidery. I decided to use both on this card and it looks like the poinsettia is made of spun sugar.
The flower portion is a verigated thread from white to burgundy in short repeats. For the leaves I used the thread that is made up of multiple pastels in yellow, green, blue and pink. I used a solid burgundy to stitch the greeting.
I mounted this on a burgundy card base and trimmed it with a scalloped gold peel-off sticker strip. Then I added Liquid Pearls dots in the flower center.
