Topic: Paper Embroidery
I had a recent vacation with a LOT of time to sit and stitch for cards. In a week's time I had 11 images stitched and then did a marathon session when I got home to turn them all into cards. NO, you don't get to see them all today - you have to take 11 days to see them.
First up was an assignment on two lists to make a sympathy card. One was for a challenge in February and the other for a swap in September. So I shared this for the challenge and will set it aside for the later swap - getting double duty.
I really liked the background paper pulled from a recently purchased 6x6 pad. The radiating design sets off this cross perfectly. I pricked out the bordering elements on the cross, leaving the centers blank to give it a more restful feeling. This was then stitched in burgundy thread.
I used similar colored papers for layering and bordering.
I added a silver peel-off sentiment for the finishing touch.
