Topic: Paper Embroidery
Challenge from a paper embroidery group Make a card with a 'vintage' theme.
I selected the 3D image first and then chose a pattern for a stitched frame for it. The background paper went with some of the leaves and I matched the threads to various parts of the illustration: a dark green, verigated pink/rose and verigated beige/tan.
I used a round punch on the illustration before assembling it. Then I trimmed it all out to a square.
I attached a scallop-punched paper at the top and backed this with 1/2 of a paper doily. I attached the other half of the doily at the bottom and wrapped with a ribbon trim.
A dark green card base was trimmed with a fancy scissor corner.
I used 'champagne' pearls in two sizes to decorate the card.
