Topic: Paper Embroidery
Challenge: Make a wedding card with paper embroidery.
I have only stitched up this pattern one time since I designed it years ago. So I decided to have another go at it. I started with a pink shimmer cardstock and pricked ut the pattern. I used irridescent white thread to stitch the cake icing, an irridescent lavender for the plate and silver for the ring cake topper. I then spritzed the card lightly with a purple shimmer spray. This also darkened portions of the plate.
This pattern has slits for ribbon to thread through to form the tier separator pillars. It also has a series of 5-spoke thread wheels so that one can needle-weave ribbon around them which creates roses. I created these ribbon roses in dark purple for the bottom layer, lavender for the middle layer and white for the top layer.
I placed silver text stickers between the cake layers and mounted it on a bordered cardstock over two lavender layers.
I love how this came out and will add it to my stash for just the right couple.
