Topic: Paper Embroidery
Assignment: Make a paper embroidery card in a different shape.
OK, I choose 'round'.
I love the way the heart takes shape out of a simple circle when stitched in two layers. This is a free pattern from Pinbroidery.com and I chose to use verigated thread.
After stitching I cut the piece into a circle. Then I cut the same size circle from a folded card base, overlapping slightly to keep the fold inside the top arc.
I sandwiched cotton lace between the stitched layer and the card base as I mounted them together.
