Topic: Paper Embroidery
I got in a little time for stitching cards. I had a challenge to make a card featuring a dog. I love this free pattern from StitchingCards.com too so I decided to use that.
I don't do the stitching as the pattern was designed as I like the body parts to be open rather than filled. I decided to use verigated thread to add interest.
A dark brown was used as a border around the dotted base and the stitched panel. Then, from a page of printed tags I punched a half-circle text piece and added faux stitching around it.
I used a couple of heart brads, colored them black with alcohol marker and added white highlights with paint pen. These make the eyes in this love-struck puppy.
